The Great Farm Trek 2009

UBC is holding the annual Great Farm Trek next Tuesday, April 7. See the following for details on supporting the future of UBC Farm!

Come help celebrate the UBC Farm and its future! It has been a great year for the farm, in terms of recognition, awards and media attention. However, the future of the 24 hectare farm is still not clear, so it is time to come together to show our unified support for a bright future for the Farm! This is a celebratory, family-friendly event. We want thousands to join us as we trek from the UBC Student Union Building (SUB) via the Board of Governors meeting and then on to the UBC Farm.

We invite you to please book off Tuesday, April 7, 2009 from 3:30 pm into the early evening to attend the Great Farm Trek 2009! If you can’t make it until after work, we will be shuttling late-comers by bus from parking areas near UBC Farm directly to the Trek crowd anytime between 3pm and 6pm. After 6pm, the crowds will be located at the UBC Farm for festivities.

Bring costumes, music, banners, posters, spirit, kids, moving art shows, farm love, floats, hot air balloons, circus performers, sandwich boards, party favours, whistles, bells, dancers, fire twirlers, clowns, bicycles, novelty cars, trapeze artists, scooters, painted school buses, TV Camera crews, and other sundry fun items. Oh yes, bring snacks, water and weather-appropriate clothing. The event will happen rain or shine!

Contact if you have questions.
