Guided Tours at UBC Farm

Want to learn about food sustainability by immersing yourself in the landscape of a working certified organic farm and research, community and teaching hub? Join us for a guided tour of our dynamic farm site! The UBC Farm provides a unique site for learning about global issues in food systems in the context of a 60-acre certified organic farm with integrated community-engaged educational programming, research, and teaching. Our tours bring visitors of all ages through the dynamic farm site to learn about each of these activities while exploring how they are linked to issues globally in biodiversity, education, sustainable agriculture, food systems, Indigenous territory and food sovereignty, and innovative research.

Review our three tour programs below to determine which is the best fit for your group and please fill out one request form only. We will do our best to accommodate all requests, but we encourage you to request tours at least two weeks in advance to ensure availability.

For groups of 10 people or fewer, you are welcome to join us on Saturdays during our market season (June through October) at 12:00 p.m. for a one-hour general tour of UBC Farm led by our Saturday Market staff. Market tours leave from the lawn in front of our Saturday market and are free for the public. Learn more about our markets here.

NEW in 2018: In addition to tours, we offer custom workshops & team-building.  Please see our webpage for details, and an online enquiry/request form.

Book a FarmWonders Field Trip – Children and Youth

If your group consists of youth up to the age of 18 or grade 12, we would be excited to host your visit through our FarmWonders Field Trip program.

Every year from spring to fall, the UBC Farm offers field trip programming for a wide range of young audiences. FarmWonders Field Trips provide an opportunity for youth to see and learn about a working certified organic farm and to discuss important social and ecological aspects of food production in our area. Join us to learn about bees, explore the forest, examine soil or compost, and even visit the chickens!
