Seeds of Knowledge – Research Day and Beet Tasting @ The UBC Farm Market
July 21 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Following up on two successful beet tasting events at UBC Farm in 2016 and 2017, FarmFolk CityFolk and the Centre for Sustainable Food System at UBC Farm are excited to announce a new event for 2018:
Seeds of Knowledge – Research Day @ The UBC Farm Market!
This event will highlight some of the results from the golden and chioggia beet variety trials in the BC Seed Trials as well as other research happening at UBC Farm – including the launch of the BC Food Web, an online database highlighting sustainable agriculture and food systems research in BC.
We will again be featuring our popular beet tasting that highlights our favourite red, golden, and chioggia beets! We will have plain beets for tasting and will feature some signature dishes prepared by BC Seed Trials Research Assistant and Chef, Carla Hick.
