On October 15 and 16, 2011 we’re excited to be joining the UBC Botanical Garden Apple Festival. In addition to a booth on-site at the festival both days, we will be offering tours of the UBC Farm Heritage Orchard on Saturday October 15 at 10am, noon and 2pm.
The UBC Farm Heritage Orchard was designed, grafted and planted as a student Directed Study beginning in 2005. A sanctuary for apple culture, the orchard is composed of ~120 trees, including ~70 varieties of apples and a handful of plums. 2011 marks our first year of significant harvest for market sales and the orchard is producing gorgeous apples. Come visit this urban agricultural gem for tours with UBC Farm staff who care for the orchard on SATURDAY October 15! Meet at the UBC Farm entrance gate. No UBC Farm orchard tours will be offered on Sunday.
