The University of British Columbia Farm is being threatened with extinction. Much of the farm's land is being considered for development, and a multi-state initiative is now under way to raise funds to save the farm.
Next, six of Vancouver's finest restaurants will each be setting a table for six and serving an amazing five-course meal accompanied by Farmstead wines. The restaurants are West, Gastropod, Cru, Fuel, Chow and La Quercia. Prior to the meal, guests will tour the UBC Farm and only then will the find out which restaurant they'll be dining at.
Tickets are $250 and can be purchased by calling Books to Cooks at (604) 688-6755.
All of these wonderful meals will feature food from the UBC Farm. As food security concerns make local food production more and more important for all of us, it's very important to preserve urban farmland and support research in sustainable food practices.
