We are now scheduling on-site Orientations for those interested in volunteering for the first time this season! You can still sign up here with Better Impact to be notified when our orientations and volunteer shifts are scheduled.
Much of the great work that happens at the UBC Farm is made possible by the continued support of the Farm’s dedicated volunteers. The UBC Farm volunteer program provides UBC students, staff, faculty members, and members of the wider community the chance to gain hands-on experience in many aspects of small-scale sustainable farming. Most volunteer opportunities are available during the main growing season (May-October) but there are often opportunities available as early as February and as late as November with the different programs below. New volunteers are required to attend a general Farm orientation before signing up for volunteer shifts and start in May and occur regularly through to September.
