The volunteer program has reopened in a modified manner. Volunteer shifts are available for volunteer who have previously attended shifts.
On-site Orientations for those interested in volunteering for the first time are finished for 2020. Please check back in Spring 2021 for new opportunities!
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 they will start again in March 2020.
