Building Local Systems for Sustainable Communities.  Community Farms Survey Report.

Community Farms Program.  The Land Conservancy of BC.  March 2009.

From the Introduction:
"Community farms, broadly defined, are multi-functional entities that incorporate a wide variety of activities on a shared land base. Food production, environmental education, agricultural mentorship and training, social services, conservation of natural and cultural heritage, outdoor recreation and provision of co-housing are just a few of the initiatives that are currently developing on BC farms.

This report emerges from a collaborative effort between The Land Conservancy of BC (TLC), FarmFolk/CityFolk (FFCF), and Simon Fraser University (SFU)."
