- providing technical field advice and services to other site users, projects, and programs.
Student Work Learn Positions

For-Credit Career Development PlacementsAll UBC students may apply for positions, interview, and – once accepted – enrol in LFS 496. Gain upper-level credits while learning from experts in the food system. Students will gain invaluable, hands-on, professional and research experience with the various opportunities on offer. Find out more about the program.
Much of the great work that happens at the UBC Farm is made possible by the continued support of the farm’s dedicated volunteers. The UBC Farm volunteer program provides UBC students, staff, faculty members, and members of the wider community the chance to gain hands-on experience in many aspects of small-scale sustainable farming. Most volunteer opportunities are available during the main growing season (May-October).
