The Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at the University of British Columbia is excited to announce that registration for the first half of our 2018 workshop series is now open! The UBC Farm hosts a wide range of workshops covering everything from permaculture and gardening to herbal medicine, weaving, fermenting, foraging, and much more. This year, we have added several new workshops and brought back many favourites. All of our workshops are beginner friendly and open to everyone, so please share with your networks! For more details and to register, visit our website, or view our list of workshops below.
Please sign up early, as popular workshops sell out; and workshops with insufficient registration are cancelled five days prior. To stay informed of new workshop offerings and other events at the UBC Farm, please sign up for our e-newsletter.
Thank you for being a part of this community and we hope to see you at the UBC Farm soon!
