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).
Due to the ongoing response to COVID-19 in Canada and around the world, the UBC Farm is officially closed to the public and we have cancelled upcoming events. The volunteer program is also on hold for the time being. Orientations and volunteer shifts will not be scheduled until further notice. Please register as a volunteer to receive updates about the program.
