A self proclaimed "learning labratory" UBC Farm encompasses 24 hectares of farm and forest on UBC’s South Campus. Managed by the Centre for Sustainable Food System, the farm is a hub of learning and community. Through knowledge sharing and hands on programming, UBC Farm is an agent of social change, driving a bigger conversation around sustainable ecosystems.
UBC Farm will provide a natural backdrop for Farmacie and connect people to their food sources. Party fare will be supplied by local farmers and restaurateurs and remind guests of the many food options we have available to us in BC. Décor will be simple and reflect the beauty of the poplar trees and wooded area surrounding us. Conversation will be charged with excitement and fueled by mutual interests; guests will leave with an expanded network and the courage to take on a passion project bigger than themselves.
Farmacie will bring a voice to UBC Farm initiatives and to imagine1day's agricultural based Income Generating Activities (IGA) at work inconjunction with its schools in Ethiopia. Farmacie will contribute 100% of its proceeds to support the further expansion of school vegetable gardens and fruit tree plantations and work with imagine1day's field office to ensure communities have the resources to manage this growth longterm.
