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 to 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, Sundays 1-4pm. See here for more details and watch our Facebook and Instagram pages for any last-minute weather-related cancellations. Sign ups are strongly encouraged (and especially helpful for those seeking rideshare) via this link.
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.
