The Centre for Sustainable Food Systems (CSFS), located at the UBC Farm, is a unique research centre that aims to understand and fundamentally transform local and global food systems towards a more sustainable, food secure future. The CSFS is a living laboratory, committed to finding solutions to both the local and global challenges facing food systems sustainability and translating solutions to improve personal, community, and environmental health.

The UBC Farm is a 24-ha teaching and learning space, and integrated production farm located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people. Situated within a 90-year-old coastal hemlock forest, the UBC Farm comprises a mosaic of cultivated annual crop fields, perennial hedgerows and orchards, pasture, teaching gardens, and forest stands. The UBC Farm is certified organic through NOOA, and grows over 200 varieties of fruits, vegetables, and herbs, and also features honey beehives and egg-laying, open-pasture hens.

Walk for the Kitties with VOKRA @ Jericho Beach
Sep 16 all-day


5k Walk – Rain or Shine!

September 16, 2018 at Jericho Beach

Help us raise money for the VOKRA kitties

Eventbrite - VOKRA Walk for the Kitties 2018

VOKRA Walk for the Kitties, presented by FirstMate, is our largest fundraising event of the year. This 5k fun walk takes place at Jericho Beach and all funds raised go directly towards supporting our rescue efforts. As a volunteer-driven non-profit, we rely on Walk for the Kitties to raise much needed funds to help us rescue more than 1,400 cats and kittens each year.

Each Walk for the Kitties participant pledges to raise funds for VOKRA to help us in our mission to end cat overpopulation and homelessness.

Help us reach our goal of $65,000
