Become a Friend of the Farm

Give the gift of local food and support us as we work toward a sustainable, food-secure future

Are you a farmers’ market enthusiast? Know someone moving to UBC? Become a Friend of the Farm! Membership with the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at UBC Farm brings you into our friend circle, supporting our work as we model and move the dial on food systems sustainability.

Through this new membership program, we honour the legacy of the original Friends of the Farm, a group of dedicated students, faculty and community members who were instrumental in saving the Farm over a decade ago, ensuring our future in learning and practice in sustainable food systems. Becoming a Friend of the Farm supports our educational programming, food cultivation and research projects from field to fork. This work impacts people from students and researchers, children and youth, farmers and food processors, policy-makers and non-profits, as well as our neighbours and community members.

How it works

Your UBC Farm membership entitles you to perks at our markets, priority access to events and CSAs, free or exclusive access to our merchandise, and it also brings our community of supporters together for fun member events such as the Annual Membership Potluck.

Memberships are valid for 12 months from the purchase date. UBC Students with valid ID receive a 10% discount on Farm Gate membership.

Purchase online

Memberships can only be purchased online at our UBC Farm store. You will receive a digital card that can be used at our markets for member deals and for redeeming perks.
