Day at the Farm
*Due to COVID-19 we have had to make the difficult and unfortunate decision to cancel the event for this year.*
Day at the Farm is our annual community awareness event that we host every September in partnership with Westham Island Herb Farm. The event offers a unique opportunity for residents of the Lower Mainland to come out to a real working farm and gain a better understanding of the importance of local farms for supporting wildlife populations in the Fraser River estuary.
The goal of the event is to help educate our communities about the importance of agriculture and the non-market environmental services that it provides. The event is free to attend and in past years has seen crowds in upwards of 4-5,000 people from across Metro Vancouver.
Event features include: education displays of 20+ agriculture commodity groups, conservation organizations and local post-secondary institutions; hay-wagon farm tours; a potato dig; live music; antique tractors and farm equipment; and food trucks to name just a few!
