UBC Botanical Garden’s Friends of the Garden volunteers re-imagine the beloved UBC Apple Festival
In a year full of challenges and changes the dedicated Friends of UBC Botanical Garden volunteers have had to put their thinking caps on to find a safe way to celebrate the diversity of apples in BC this year. The volunteer organized UBC Apple Festival has been supporting BC farmers for 29 years, and is always a community favourite. After determining that a physical event would not be possible, the group came up with the idea to sell apples online and are calling it the UBC Apple Market. This year’s apple selection will focus on 10 festival favourites. There will also be 34 varieties of apple trees available for those that would like to grow their own, and thirst-quenching apple cider on offer.
The re-imagined COVID-friendly Apple Market will sell apples online for pickup at UBC Botanical Garden on October 16-18th.
Check back to this page in the coming days to shop our online store to purchase apple, cider, trees, and more. You can also sign up for our email newsletter to be the first to know when our Apple Market store launches.
Thank you to our wonderful community for supporting us throughout the years.
