Volunteer as a Farm Friend

The Intergenerational Landed Learning Project invites adults who care about land, food, and community to volunteer as “Farm Friends” and garden with school children at the UBC Farm. Farm Friend volunteers work in intergenerational teams of one elder, one younger, and 3-5 elementary students to care for the Earth as they explore, sow, grow, harvest, cook, and eat together at the UBC Farm. Farm Friends commit 13 mornings (Wednesday or Thursday every other week, 8:30am-1pm) from late September-June to work and learn with their Farm Friend teams. On-call volunteers are also sought.
