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!
