British Columbia Hotel Reservations
While in the vibrant city of Vancouver, enjoy a tour of the 993-acre University of British Columbia campus, located six miles west of downtown. This public research university continues its research education in a variety of research centres, including the UBC Farm.
This twenty-four acre farm on the university's south campus, is maintained by the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems. Enjoy a tour of this "living laboratory" to see the crop fields, orchards and perennials.
University students study innovative sustainability, as active stewards of the farm land, with a focus on community service. Local Vancouver residents have the opportunity to participate in the farm's Growing Season Workshop Series, that include cooking classes, plant breeding and cheese making workshops.
Visit the farm between June and October, on Saturdays, for the Farm Markets where a variety of local produce, flowers and baked goods are on sale.
