The UBC Farm Career Development Internship engages UBC students with their local food system and creates opportunities to experience the working environment of a food sustainability focused organization. Selected interns will receive credits towards their UBC degree while increasing their understanding and knowledge of food systems research, from organic agriculture to food production methods, food-focused community engagement, and business management.
Much of the great work that happens at the UBC Farm is made possible by the continued support of the farm’s dedicated volunteers. The UBC Farm volunteer program provides UBC students, staff, faculty members, and members of the wider community the chance to gain hands-on experience in many aspects of small-scale sustainable farming. Most volunteer opportunities are available during the main growing season (May-October). Visit our Volunteering page to learn how you can get involved.
Our workshops are typically 1.5-3 hrs, and usually fit into one of three general categories: gardening/farming, food and beverage preparation and preservation, and sustainable living skills. We pay our presenters a competitive honorarium, which depends on the length of the workshop, as well as provide reimbursement (up to a specific limit) for supply expenses.
