The UBC Farm is a 24-ha teaching, research, and community farm located at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC. The Farm is home to a range of programs where students, faculty, staff, and the local community work together to create a place where anyone can come to learn, live and value the connection between land, food and community. Forming a rich mosaic of cultivated fields, orchards, pasture, teaching gardens, and forest, the Farm is a unique urban agrarian gem. The farm is under the stewardship of the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems, which operates as part of UBC’s Faculty of Land and Food Systems.
The centre’s mission is to provide innovative, interdisciplinary student-centred experiential learning, sustainable food systems research, and community service through stewardship of an urban agro-ecosystem.
