UBC Farm produce sales, public educational workshops, and special events serve as a dynamic site for enhancing the farm’s role in the broader community. Students and recent graduates frequently take a leadership role in overseeing business management and community engagement initiatives at the farm. The farm’s role as a living laboratory can be seen in classroom case studies ranging from farm marketing plans to the launching of “Meet Your Farmer” events for campus residents.

November 1, 2012 The UBC Farm will be taking a hiatus from booking high-impact weddings for the 2013 season. Although we enjoy welcoming a diversity of events to the Farm, due to the extended coordination involved with weddings we will only be considering bookings for low-impact ceremonies in 2013. Rental requests for other types of events are also welcome, and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. For more details please see our private events page.
