Paper-making & Farm walkabout

The Friends of the UBC Farm  held their first walkabout and workshop of 2013 yesterday morning. The sun even came out to greet us as we took a walk around the farm, spotting many different bird species among the fields and trees. We spotted a few varieties growing in the fields, including beets, kale, collard greens, and various herbs. After the tour we made seed paper and little soil pots using recycled newsprint, a variety of seeds, and dried flowers from the UBC Farm. It was a nice way to end the week and start off the weekend!

Coming up in February and March, FoTF will be holding an outreach booth at the Environmental Fair in Gage Residence on Feb 26 (6-8pm) and on March 15 we’ll be at the UBC Farm Student Symposium at the SUB (9-5pm) – Hope to see you there!

The fresh autumn air welcome all with the generous harvest of the season.   Acorn, Cinderella, Chucky and Delicata chatter excitingly in their harvest crates- wondering who will enjoy them in craft and cooking!

What a wonderful time of abundance and hunkering down!  Come on out to the UBC Farm Pumpkin Patch and bring home a Jack O Lantern, Sugar or Baby Pumpkin – stop by, the gates are open from 9am-5pm Tuesday through Saturdays.  And of course our campus and farm markets are offering fabulous fall produce in many shades and tastes of green, orange, red, yellow,  and blue!

Enjoy a virtual UBC Farm fall walkabout through these pictures, and hope to see you soon.  With warmth and community!
