Event description
This conference is an opportunity for small scale farmers across Metro Vancouver to come together for a day filled with workshops.

About this Event

SPEC is one of Canada’s oldest urban environmental non-profits. Since 1969 its volunteer-driven advocacy initiatives, educational programs and events have inspired countless residents of Greater Vancouver to take a stronger stand for the environment.

The Small Scale Farm Session is an opportunity for farmers across Metro Vancouver to come together and engage with each other and participate in presentations and workshops related to their field.

Volunteers are required to assist with the set-up and take down of the event, help at the registration table and take notes of the presentations with flexible shifts of one to three hours at length, during the morning and in the afternoon.

This is an excellent opportunity for anyone with a passion for environmental education, food literacy, food security and sustainable agriculture. Also great for students or newcomers hoping to gain some volunteer experience.

As a volunteer you will gain direct experience with event management, not profit organizations and an opportunity to build your communication and interpersonal skills.
