The Pye Centre for Northern Boreal Food Systems of the Labrador Campus of Memorial University is a vibrant hub for food systems education, research, community connections, and wellness programming. We offer programs, services, events, and activities that educate, connect, engage, and inspire sustainable agricultural practices, environmental stewardship, and equitable access to fresh and desired food.
We partner with local farmers and Indigenous governments and communities in Labrador, as well as academic, industry, and administrative leaders and organizations across the region and country, to elevate the importance of more sustainable Northern food systems. Together with our partners, we share a deep commitment to honouring and celebrating the relationships among land, people, and animals that strengthen and support thriving food systems.
The Pye Centre’s strategic plan, From the Ground Up, describes who we are, what we do, and how we will grow forward, together. It reaffirms our common purpose and shared goals—the qualities that are essential to our future success—and provides guideposts to help in strategic decision-making. Read From the Ground Up here.
