Customized Workshops

Come to the UBC Farm to engage your team in an experience that promotes teamwork, learning and fun, and leave feeling inspired, energized and connected.  Join us for one or a combination of the following:

  • a hands-on sustainable living skills workshop
  • get physical by engaging in a farming task (note: availability depends on season)
  • a tour of the Farm, including (when available) tasting samples of freshly harvested produce
  • enjoy a catered meal together in a beautiful setting

We offer customized programs for a range of audiences, from corporate team-building and service-learning to tour group experiences to celebratory events such as birthdays or reunions.  We work with you to design a unique program tailored to fit your group’s goals.  Although most of our workshops are geared for an adult audience, we offer an option to select “Children’s Program” if you’re interested in making a booking for a group of children or youth.  We require a 10-person minimum for customized bookings.

Our program durations and activities are completely customized for each group’s interests, timing, and needs; however, for a sample of what this experience could look like, as a 4-hr program:

9:00 am Meet at UBC Farm, Introduction, & Farm Tour (with sampling of farm fresh produce) 75 min
10:15 am Farming Task OR Workshop 90 min
