Hey Farm Friends! Come join us for the seventh annual Farmade, an afternoon of late September sun, great local music, delicious BBQ food, beer, and merriment. It’s a great way to be introduced to the UBC Farm or to rekindle your farm love after a summer away. Last year’s event drew over 800 people and we expect this year’s to be even larger! See you there,
