The 2023 UBC Farm Practicum in Sustainable Agriculture is now accepting applications!
The UBC Farm Practicum in Sustainable Agriculture is a six-month experiential learning program designed for aspiring farmers, environmental educators, gardeners, and students interested in applying knowledge about sustainable agriculture and food systems.
Students bring a diversity of backgrounds and life experience to the practicum. Our program graduates share a vision of livelihoods and lifestyles grounded in sustainable and community-based food systems. The program is open to all; you do not have to be a UBC student.
For the 2023 program, we have two application pools:
- Full Program, April 8 – October 20
- Summer Option, April 8 – August 19. This option is intended to accommodate the scheduling limitations of students currently enrolled at UBC or other institutions.
