2020 UBC Farm Practicum in Sustainable Agriculture
APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN!

Program: Practicum in Sustainable Agriculture
Type: seven- or five-month part-time learning program / fee-based
Organization: UBC Farm
Location: Vancouver, British Columbia
Eligibility: You do not have to be a UBC student or post-secondary student.

The UBC Farm Practicum can be taken as either a seven-month (April - October), or as a five-month (April - August), experiential-learning program. The program is part-time (approximately 20 hours per week), and is designed for aspiring farmers, urban gardeners, environmental educators, and students with an interest in applying their learning about sustainable agriculture and food systems. The UBC Farm is a 24-hectare gem, the largest urban farm in Vancouver, British Columbia, and situated on a site with numerous research, educational, and community outreach activities.

Participants gain a deeper understanding of agricultural management and small-scale farming, and a network of incredible people to support them along the way. The main approach to learning within the program is hands-on practice. Participants carry out seasonal farming activities with leadership provided by UBC Farm staff in the greenhouses, gardens, fields, orchards, and at our farmers’ markets. In addition, the program includes numerous guest speakers, field trips to various farming operations within the province, and access to a plot at the UBC Farm for individual and shared production.

For more information, and to apply, please see the UBC Farm Practicum website.  All applications are due by October 27th.  Please note: You do not have to be a UBC student or post-secondary student.
