Trek to Save the UBC Farm


Have you been wondering what’s been going on with the UBC Farm lately? If so, this news release from the AMS has a nice summary:
PAST: UBC Farm History
PRESENT: The Vancouver Campus Planning process and the UBC Farm
FUTURE: The Great Farm Trek 2009

The walk out to the farm is an interesting one, so I hope to see you there for the TREK.

Joanne often gets really excited when she talks about Science. Luckily, she works in the Advanced Molecular Biology Laboratory, the educational arm of the Michael Smith Labs. She likes all kinds of science but has a special spot in her heart for biology, technology, and well, sports. As a scientist and educator at UBC, she hopes that she never becomes so specialized that she loses her global perspective. (When she gets around to writing an intro post, I'm sure that she'll link to it here).

    Thank you so much for mentioning the Trek! It’ll be a lovely family-friendly event and an excellent way to celebrate the UBC Farm and all that it offers our “foodshed”. At the same time, it will be a nice way to encourage the Board of Governors to continue moving in a positive direction, because there is still some ambiguity about the future of the Farm.

    Hooray for the Trek! We’re really looking forward to this event – some excellent bee puppets were recently made in anticipation… Thanks for your help in spreading the word!

    Better yet, come to the trek and see the puppets yourself!
