About KPU Farm: The KPU Farm is located at The Garden City Lands in the heart of Richmond. 55 hectares (136 acres) of municipally-owned land in the Agricultural Land Reserve, just 200 meters east of KPU's Richmond campus. KPU's Department of Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems leases eight hectares (20 acres) of the site for a Teaching and Research Farm. The farm highlights diversified, sustainable, regenerative, and organic production practices adjacent to the population centre of downtown Richmond. Students study and practice at the farm while working toward their Bachelor of Applied Science in Sustainable Agriculture. Their produce is certified organic.
