Learn how to grow food with the hands-on UBC Farm Practicum in Sustainable Agriculture! Gain a deeper understanding of agricultural management and small-scale farming and join a network of incredible people who will support you along the way.

Practicum 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.

The UBC Farm Practicum can be taken as either a six-month (April – October), or as a four-month (April – August), experiential-learning program. The program is part-time (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.

Application deadline: November 1st.

Interested in finding out more? Join the Practicum Open House (virtual) on Wednesday, October 20th, 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. We will provide a forum to ask
questions and provide a virtual tour of the site from the perspective of the program. Registration is required.

Please note: To enroll in the Practicum program, you do NOT have to be a UBC student or post-secondary student; however, 6-9 academic credits are available for interested university students.
