The Annual UBC Apple Festival was last weekend (Oct 18/19) and it was WONDERFUL! We had sunshine, and amazing volunteers, and GIANT APPLE COSTUMES…. and we had a super supportive reception from all the Apple Fest crowd. (Thanks UBC Bot Gardens!!)
We raised ~ $1300 for the UBC Farm through sales and encouraged ~1700 petition signatures in two days!! AMAZING!! Also, 28 enthusiastic folks joined our tours of the new(ish) UBC Farm Heritage orchard ~ launching its career as an urban agricultural education site. Overall, a huge success.
Thanks to all who came out and supported the UBC Farm and the Bot Gardens…. see you again next year!
