Important Changes to our Programs During COVID-19

UBC Farm Markets are back! View our market page for new and increased safety precautions. We ask market customers not to stay on site: we remain closed to the public in order to protect our field and market staff, approved researchers and Indigenous program members due to the ongoing response to COVID-19 in Canada and around the world. Read our full safety plan here.

Our growing season is going ahead. Our produce is available at our Tuesday Evening and Saturday UBC Farm Farmers' Markets and through our CSA program. View our COVID-19 Market Plan.

During Phase 1 Research Resumption, research activities at the UBC Farm will continue for those projects with approved COVID-19 UBC-Farm Field Work Safety Plans. For more information please check the COVID-19 UBC-Farm Research Resumption Plan.
