The UBC Farm stretches across 24 hectares of integrated farm and forest lands on the South Campus of UBC’s. The Centre for Sustainable Food Systems manages the university’s farm. The Centre offers a wide range of interdisciplinary learning, research, and community programs. This is your chance to bring home local fresh produce right from an urban farm.
The Farm offers summer camps for kids during July & August. They also offer field trips for school groups throughout the year. Be sure to keep an eye on their events page as popular events such as the Joy of Feeding sell out very quickly. If you are interested in learning more about produce, growing a garden, and agriculture check out their wide variety of workshops offered to the general public.
If you are just looking to bring home tasty treats from the farm then be sure to visit one of their weekly markets.
