Duke’s Unique Teaching Spaces: The Duke Campus Farm
The Duke Campus Farm is a one-acre working farm and living laboratory providing sustainably-grown produce and food systems education to Duke and its surrounding communities. Through academic coursework and research, and through the work of our student farm crew, we grow and harvest for Duke’s dining halls and our Community Supported Agriculture program. More important than the thousands of pounds of food that we grow, however, are the opportunities the farm provides for engaging and reimagining the ways we cultivate, access, value, and think about food (and so much more!).
We’ve worked with faculty from all schools at Duke to teach everything from indigenous history and carbon offsets to mindfulness and post-humanism. Join us to understand how the farm can animate or help develop your course content, and how place-based, experiential learning might serve your course. We’re accessible for free to all Duke affiliates via Duke’s partnership with Lyft. More info about who we are and how to get to us here.
In this Spring 2020 event series, Duke’s Unique Teaching Spaces, find out about spaces outside the traditional classroom that you can reserve for class meetings, and which can offer your students opportunities for deep research and engagement. Register for the final session:
