Guided Tours at the UBC Farm
Want to learn about food sustainability by immersing yourself in the landscape of a working certified organic farm and research, community and teaching hub? Join us for a guided tour of our dynamic farm site! The UBC Farm provides a unique site for learning about global issues in food systems in the context of a 60-acre certified organic farm with integrated community-engaged educational programming, research, and teaching. Our tours bring visitors of all ages through the dynamic farm site to learn about each of these activities while exploring how they are linked to issues globally in biodiversity, education, sustainable agriculture, food systems, Indigenous territory and food sovereignty, and innovative research.
Review our three tour programs below to determine which is the best fit for your group and please fill out one request form only. We will do our best to accommodate all requests, but we encourage you to request tours at least two weeks in advance to ensure availability.
