Thanks to everyone who made it out to FarmAde last Friday.
Many thanks also to our wonderful volunteers and to the tireless Nancy Toogood for spearheading this event with such zeal for the eighth year in a row! Without you, FarmAde would simply not have taken place. Our home brewing workshop host, Danny Seeton, also deserves a special shout out for having enthusiastically led a workshop for over 4 hours amidst a painful headache, which he only revealed to us the end of the day.
With about 1300 smiling attendees strolling through the UBC Farm gates, this year was our best attended FarmAde. It was such a pleasure to see so many familiar faces and to welcome folks who had never been to the UBC Farm. This annual event is a very important part of promoting awareness about the UBC Farm, the opportunities that it offers for academic and community involvement, and also for supporting its land security.
Amidst all of the bustle on Friday, we realize that FarmAde did not take place without a few inevitable rough patches. In particular, we apologize for challenges with the shuttle busing. We greatly appreciate your understanding with such matters, and we welcome input about how we can make the event more enjoyable next year. Also, we’d gladly appreciate any pictures from the day that you would be willing to share with us (email@example.com)!
