    About the Panelists:

    Emily Neufeld was born in Alberta, on Treaty 6 and 7 lands, and now lives and works on the unceded territory of the Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh and Musqueam in North Vancouver. Her practice investigates place, and how humans change and are changed by the surrounding environment, and the layers of memory and psychic history that accumulate in a material world. Neufeld has created and participates in community sharing gardens, and sees land as fundamental to her research process.

    Amy Norgaard, a 2015 graduate of the UBC Farm Practicum is currently completing a MSc in Soil Science in the Sustainable Agricultural Landscapes lab at UBC. The goal of her research is to help organic farms meet their goal of producing food with a reduced environmental impact through enhanced nutrient management. She is a Professional Agrologist and teaches sustainable soil management with the KPU – Tsawwassen First Nation Farm School.
