About me

Location Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Introduction SPEC was founded in 1969 and is the oldest non-profit charitable organization that addresses environmental issues in British Columbia. We do advocacy, education and research with a focus on offering practical solutions for urban sustainability challenges. One of our current campaigns is to promote urban agriculture and local food production. Our crew consists of a variety of dedicated volunteers who have a keen interest in food, gardening, biodiversity, sustainable systems and more. In the process of developing our two demonstration sites we are learning what will and will not work under two different types of growing conditions - a rooftop and a garden plot. Our goal is to share what we have learned about urban agriculture as a way to helping or inspiring others to join in the task of local and household food production.
