UBC Farm Student Group

Join the UBC Farm Student Group to receive shift updates, alerts on events going on at the Farm and more!

Maybe you’ve already done some volunteer shifts at the UBC Farm or even completed an internship at the Farm, but you want to get involved on your own terms. Enter: The UBC Farm Student Group. This group is open to all students, regardless of faculty, background, gardening experience or ability. The main purpose of this group is to make the Farm more accessible to all students and provide an opportunity to feel a sense of belonging and ownership at the Farm — because the Farm is truly your space!

The Student Group will primarily work in the Children’s Garden to help with its maintenance when children’s programming is not running, providing an opportunity to gain hands-on gardening experience. There will also be special monthly shifts in other areas of the Farm, like in the blueberry or strawberry fields. Upcoming meetups will get posted on the Facebook group a minimum two weeks in advance. We are excited to get more people out and involved at the Farm! These meetups are just the beginning. In the future there may be opportunities to organize workshops, plan events and more! See the Facebook Group for more details.
