Re-envisioning Hedgerows: UBC Farm Centre

sketch_farmcentre

The UBC Farm Centre will cultivate connections between students, faculty and its extended communities by revealing the intricacies of a Hedgerow, weaving together supportive programs and spaces that nurture our relationship with each other, with food and with the land. Hedgerows encompass the Farms motto of “No one thing just does one thing” and this idea is acknowledged throughout the site and as well by the form and function of the Farm Centre. To create a compassionate environment both within and beyond the boundaries of the site, the characteristics of a Hedgerow and our role within natural systems will be illuminated through the programmed pathways at the interface of the farm and South campus. The project recreates layers in a hedgerow, bringing an educational and sensorial experience for all who visit.
