All of these photos were taken on the gorgeous, sunny afternoon we had yesterday. Workers on the farm strolled around in tank tops and t-shirts, reveling in what we could call the lack of bone-chilling cold. We’re also in the midst of Reading Week at UBC, the 5 day break whose name is a bit of a laugh, as most take advantage of the week to travel, sleep in and generally escape from all things academic. Some, however, choose to engage in community service learning (CSL) projects coordinated by the University, and the UBC Farm was lucky enough to host to 3 of these groups this week. Thanks to these hardworking students, we now have new fencing around our irrigation pits, ramps we call “speedbumps” which enable us to drive the tractors around the Farm without crushing our irrigation pipes, and a new outdoor sink and tote storage system. So glad that all of these students were able to come out and join us, and provide these improvements to the Farm.
