On-site Orientations for those interested in volunteering for the first time have begun for our 2021 season! Sign up here with Better Impact to find an available orientation session.
We are currently experiencing a lot of interest in our volunteer programs. This may mean delays in finding open orientations or shifts. We ask for your patience as we find ways to safely accommodate for as many people as we can.
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.
