Ahoy UBC Farm Friends!

The UBC Farm has been nominated for the Campusperks “Best Life” contest. With the help of Duncan McHugh from the Faculty of Land and Food Systems Learning Centre, we put together the short video below on a lushly rainy day at the farm. It highlights the experiences of our contest rep, Anelyse Weiler, with the UBC Farm community and features a few other familiar faces from our South Campus hub.  In addition to raising awareness about the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems and its innovative initiatives, the contest provides an opportunity to win some funding that would support the UBC Farm’s sustainability programming.

Although we have embedded the video in this post just for fun, please take the time to visit the clip on the contest website at this link.  Once you register your email address, you can vote for the clip every day until January 20th.  Please share the contest website link with anyone that you think would be interested (e.g. email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.).  Many thanks for your support!
