Conference Venue

Getting to the Conference
Join us at the UBC Nest!
6133 University Blvd. Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z1
The Nest is centrally located at the University of British Columbia, which sits on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaking xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people.
We are thrilled to host the conference at The Nest, a beautifully designed venue that fosters interaction and creativity through its spacious and well-lit spaces. 
Sustainability is a key priority for Farm to School BC, and this venue aligns perfectly with our values. The Nest boasts a prestigious LEED+ Platinum certification, the highest recognition for sustainable building practices in North America
Our conference will take place in the Great Hall and a selection of meeting rooms on the second floor of The Nest. We will also make use of the Gallery Patio and Lounge on the fourth floor. 
Convenient elevator access is available and you will find wheelchair-accessible restrooms on each level. For more information on the venue layout and room capacities, please click here.
