This past summer, students enrolled in the UBC Farm Practicum in Sustainable Agriculture participated in “Walkabout Thursdays”, an outdoor lecture series held at the UBC Farm. The series was delivered by some of our emeritus professors, including Judy Myers, Bob Copeman, Bob Blair, Art Bomke and Tim Ballard, and featured topics such as entomology, poultry care and nutrition, and sheep handling with dogs. Discussions were also led by Professor Mahesh Upadhyaya (weed ecology and management) and LFS alumnus Bill Awmack (seeds, forage and cover crops).
