Interest in food has never been greater. The nutritional value of food, the supply chain and how food affects our health are topics of ever increasing awareness. Join us in this Urban Farm Tours series to visit three gardens that are changing the way Durham eats. On our third farm visit we go to Durham Public Schools Hub Farm, a 30-acre farm where students, teachers and the community can grow, harvest, cook and eat healthful food through experiential learning strategies. This follows a visit Duke Campus Farm and the Geer Street Learning Gardens of the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle. Each of these tours will offer insight on beginning or extending your own garden and encourage you to think on a community-wide basis about food and health. Directions will be sent so we can meet on site. Sign up for one or all three tours. Dates: Thursday, March 22, 5:30-7 p.m., Duke Campus Farm; Thursday, March 29, 5:30-7 p.m., Inter-Faith Food Shuttle's Geer Street Learning Garden; Wednesday, April 4, 5:30-7 p.m., Durham Public Schools' Hub Farm. Information/registration: 919-668-1707 or gardenseducation@duke.edu
