We can’t wait to see you and enjoy the beauty of UBC Farm!Directions: The Wesbrook Place neighbourhood is currently (spring 2012) under active construction, and the route to the farm is subject to change. Check this map for updated directions to the farm amidst the construction, and look for changing directional signs on Wesbrook Mall. Overflow parking can park in “weekend only” overflow lot in the construction zone.

More about UBC Farm:
The UBC Farm encompasses 24 hectares of integrated farm and forest lands on UBC’s South Campus. The farm is managed by the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems, which offers a wide range of interdisciplinary learning, research,
and community programs on the site. Together, these programs explore and exemplify new paradigms for sustainable communities.

Situated within a 90-year old coastal hemlock forest, the UBC Farm comprises a mosaic of cultivated annual crop fields, perennial hedgerows and orchards, and successional forest stands. In the midst of a city, this landscape offers an important bridge between the rural and the urban.

Embodying UBC’s aspirations to be a “living laboratory,” the UBC Farm engages learners of all ages, from preschool through to faculty researchers. The farm is home to a range of research projects and university courses. Community involvement is integrated throughout its Children’s Learning Garden, Aboriginal programming, farm markets, and
volunteer program.
