About the Program: 

The Hub Farm of Durham Public Schools is a 30-acre farm, woodland, and aquatic habitat where students, teachers and the community:

- Grow, harvest, cook and eat healthful food
- Hike, bike, and explore nature on our trail system
- Engage in experiential learning about agriculture, food systems, and natural science

Since the Hub Farm’s official launch in October 2012, resources have grown to include production and habitat gardens, chickens, ducks, a barn, nature trails, a floating lab, outdoor classrooms and harvest and cooking stations. Thousands of DPS students and other community members have explored the land to learn about food production and land stewardship through hands-on, experiential learning.
