UBC Farm Sales Assistant

We are seeking an energetic and reliable person to work with the UBC Farm team to support the growth of and to participate in the success of the CSFS’ field and sales program. The Sales Assistant works under the supervision of the Sales Manager and works collaboratively with UBC Farm staff to assist with the sale and tracking of agricultural products marketed through various direct sales channels (specifically the Tuesday Evening Markets, Wednesday Campus Markets, and Saturday Markets), and to assist with day-to-day harvest and processing (harvest, washing and packing) operations. These sales activities and associated record keeping intrinsically form a part of the academic programming at the CSFS and substantially inform cropping decisions.

Volunteer 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).
