‌Welcome to the Agriburban Research Centre at the University of the Fraser Valley

The Agriburban Research Centre (ARC) is dedicated to the study of landscapes on the edge of major urban areas, with a focus on creating thriving agricultural regions within regional cities. ARC will draw on global examples to study intensive agriculture, residential and agricultural interactions, agrarian migration experiences, fringe development, agricultural/ecological interactions, and land use regimes. Created as a joint project between UFV Geography and UFV Agriculture, ARC is intended to be a centre for excellence in the area of the rural/urban fringe.


Lenore newman, Lisa Powell, and Hannah Wittman, have published a new article, "Landscapes of food production in agriburbia: Farmland protection and local food movements in British Columbia," in the Journal of Rural Studies.
