Tour Description

Tour Host: Spring Gillard

Why should city people care about farmers and farmland? Join author and host Spring Gillard on this guided tour of University of British Columbia Farm. We look at our very own west side urban farm and its vital role at the university and in our community. We discuss how important farmland is to our food system.

Tour the market garden that supplies the Saturday farmers’ market. We’ll talk with gardeners in the Mayan and Aboriginal gardens. Learn about the intergenerational landed learning project and other innovative programs operating out of this local productive landscape.

Jane's Walk

Jane's Walk is held simultaneously in cities across Canada and other countries around the world. Inspired by Jane Jacob's and her belief that in order to know your city "you have to get out and walk," Jane's Walk is a simple idea. It is free, it connects people and builds communities by promoting urban literacy and citizen engagement.
