Robert and Stacey Spring
Robert and Stacey Spring – 2015 Graduates of the UBC Farm Practicum
Since completing the Practicum, Robert and Stacey spent a couple years pursuing other educational opportunities before beginning their dream family farm in earnest. Stacey attended KPU in a Sustainable Agriculture program and Robert at BCIT and Groundswell. This summer, they couldn’t wait any longer and started ‘UpBeet Farm’: a small-scale, organic and beyond, vegetable farm located at Stump Lake, BC.
“We wanted to make sure we had as much education as we could get before moving out of the lower mainland to our new rural farm for good. We are are currently growing a variety of vegetables, flowers, garlic and our little toddler.” Say Robert and Stacey. “We still keep in touch and are constantly inspired by our many farming friends from UBC Farm.”
