Darrin Qualman:

Low-input agriculture: a solution for birds, bugs, the climate, and farm income

Darrin worked for 14 years as a writer and researcher and the top staff-person at the National Farmers Union. There, he wrote about food, farming, climate change and the environment. He recently returned to university and completed undergraduate degrees in biology and history. He is now working on a book on the material and energy flows that underpin natural systems and human civilizations. He farmed for many years near Dundurn.

Evening Parking on the University of Saskatchewan Campus

Avoid a parking ticket while attending the SNS monthly meetings - consider these parking options on campus:

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Construction on the U. of Sask. campus - reduced pedestrian access to the Biology building

As a result of construction of the new Collaborative Science Research Building (CSRB) on the north side of the Biology Building the North entrance and walkway, opposite the Agriculture Parkade, and the pedestrian walkway from the Parkade to Biology are closed and will not reopen until April 2018. Traffic on the north side of the Biology Building has been rerouted. There is still access to the Agriculture Parkade, but from there you will need to access the Biology Building via Physics.

For the general meetings you might park east of the Physics Building. If you park in the Agriculture Parkade you will need to walk outside from Agriculture past Kirk Hall and past the John Mitchell building to the SE entrance to Physics and then through Physics to Geology to Biology buildings after descending one flight of stairs. See path shown by purple stars on the map.

Changes to parking at the University of Saskatchewan

Please contact any member of the SNS Board if you have questions or concerns about access to the Biology Building.
