Urban Farm Tours: Geer Street Learning Garden

Thu, March 29, 2018, 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM

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.

For this excursion, we will go to Inter-Faith Food Shuttle's Geer Street Learning Garden to see a space that seeks to build community resilience and engage people in the powerful act of growing distributing and sharing local food. In the third and final meeting in this series, we’ll visit Durham Public Schools' Hub Farm, a 30-acre farm where students, teachers and the community can grow, harvest, cook and eat healthy food through experiential learning strategies.

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.

Fee: Gardens members, free; General public $20 for one tour. Fee for two or more tours: Gardens members, free; general public, $18.
