Applications for academic year Field Crew positions are now closed. We will post summer positions on March 1, and we encourage prospective candidates to join us for a Community Work Day to meet the farm and its stewards.
DCF AmeriCorps Member Abijah Gattis facilitates these weekly discussions on equity in our food system. All are welcome. For more information about past labs, to get links to past readings, and to get a reminder when labs resume after Valentine's Day, click here.
DukeImmerse "Imagining the Future of Food"
We had an amazing semester with this year's Duke Immerse cohort, who spent a semester taking a deep dive into the challenges and opportunities of our current food system. Check out their Life Cycle Analysis on NC-grown caviarhere. We expect offer this program again in Fall 2023.
DCF Alumni Share Their Stories
To celebrate ten years, we're sharing the stories of some of the fifty-five students who have come through our program and built our farm from the ground up.
Find out more about what we've been up to in our most recent Annual Report.
Floey Zhao and Cam Lavallee created a new signage system to help visitors engage more deeply with DCF's plants. Read their beautiful accounts of the ecological and human histories of okra, bittermelon, tobacco, and more here, or look out for the scannable QR codes next time you're at the farm.
These are open opportunities to experience the joys and hard work of growing real food - no experience necessary, all are welcome. Community workdays will resume after Valentine's Day. See you at the farm soon!
We could all use a break from our screens and expectations of constant productivity. Decompress is NOT organized around farm work; it is YOUR time to sit, stroll, sip, write, craft, and connect as you like, no plan or dirty hands required. We'll start back up once the weather gets warmer. Learn more here.
