The Duke Campus Farm is proud to teach credit-bearing courses that engage both traditional pedagogies and experiential, embodied learning. In addition to teaching our own courses, the Duke Campus Farm collaborates with faculty across campus to make the farm a dynamic classroom. Connect with us to initiate a course collaboration or site visit.

    Student Research

    The Duke Campus Farm was started by a determined group of undergraduate students, and we honor this legacy by continuing to center students in our work. We work regularly with undergraduates designing food-systems-related theses and Program 2 majors, graduate students exploring master's projects, and will happily collaborate on student research projects on a case-by-case basis. It is crucial that you start reaching out to your faculty and farm staff regarding the project you have in mind as early as possible. Please email us a with your intentions for collaborating and we'll set up a time to further discuss.
