Yuko Suda, P.Eng., Director
Yuko Suda is a practicing professional civil engineer (P.Eng.) and is also the owner/operator of Brave Child Farms in Surrey, BC. She started her farm from a desire to support the local ecology and food systems, spend more time with her children, and do her part in fighting climate change. Prior to starting her farm, Yuko completed the Farming Practicum at the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at the University of British Columbia in 2017.
Yuko’s engineering focus is on drainage, irrigation, and climate change mitigation/adaptation. She has been working with a number of local organizations (non-profit and municipalities) in helping improve access to on-farm drainage and irrigation, as well as incorporating climate change adaptation measures into the local system. Yuko’s farming focus is on producing culturally relevant Asian vegetables (with a main focus on Japanese and Chinese vegetables) suited to our local climate.
