Dr. Lenore Newman is leading a SSHRC-funded research project, Understanding Agriburbia: Conflict and Innovation on the Rural/Urban Fringe, to study the evolution of agriburban landscapes and the role they play in regional food security.

With funding from the Abbotsford Community Foundation Agricultural Enhancement Grants Program, Dr. Lenore Newman is leading a project to research and exhibit the changes to the agricultural and environmental landscape in the Fraser Valley, designed to demonstrate the economic realities and community impact of agriculture on Abbotsford. The project, entitled Life in Agriburbia: 40 Years of the Agricultural Land Reserve, will research the evolution of the land reserve and the land excluded from protection and will present both maps and photographs documenting this research as a public exhibition.
