Our CSA program is an agricultural marketing and distribution initiative that is part of the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems within the UBC Faculty of Land and Food Systems. Our program provides members of the UBC campus and the broader community with a weekly box of fresh, healthy, local, organic produce, grown locally at the UBC Farm. While we strive to provide professional quality services to our CSA members, the ultimate goal of the program is educational. The program provides experiential learning opportunities for both students and volunteers, and all financial proceeds go towards the operation of the farm. More than 2,500 students each year directly benefit from this unique learning environment.
Our CSA season typically starts mid-June and runs until the end of October for 20 weeks. Our pickup stand is located on site at the farm. We offer two pickup days in the week, Tuesdays and Saturdays. A multi-vendor farmers’ market occurs simultaneously with our Saturday pickup hours.
