Embattled Lantzeville urban farmer gives up



Dirk Becker and Nicole Shaw’s fight with their neighbour– and his friends on the Lantzeville, B.C. council– has worn them down to the point where they’re selling their Compassionate Farm property.

Dirk’s style is not always conducive to compromise, but his integrity, expertise and passion for local agriculture and food security is unmatched.

If he and Nicole end up moving out of Lantzeville as well as moving out of their neighbourhood, the community will lose a real leader in growing local, fresh, organic food.
