UBC Farm Team
UBC Farm's Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program is a chance for members of the community to receive a weekly box of fresh, organic produce from the UBC Farm, while students have the opportunity to learn about this innovative production and marketing system.
CSAs are proving to play a significant role in preserving small-scale farming enterprises and in educating more people about sustainable food production. The application deadline for 2010 has been reached, but please stay tuned for next year's application in 2011.
The UBC Farm CSA program provides valuable experiential learning opportunities for students and volunteers. The diversity of crops and methods used at the UBC farm provides fertile ground for student and faculty research into low-input and sustainable agricultural techniques. It's also our goal to involve the wider community in our food production system. Involvement in the CSA program is an opportunity to follow the season at UBC and to try a wide variety of fruits and vegetables that are suited to our local climate and growing conditions. You may be surprised at what can be grown here!
