Durham, DCDSB partner on dual credit program in sustainable urban agriculture

Durham College’s Barrett Centre of Innovation in Sustainable Urban Agriculture has partnered with the Durham Catholic District School Board (DCDSB) to provide a dual credit program in sustainable urban agriculture. The Propagation of Vegetables program is modified from a course from Durham’s Horticulture – Food and Farming program. It gives high school students the opportunity to explore careers in agriculture while learning about working on a farm. “Whether or not the kids go on to be farmers, understanding what goes into the production of food and seeing the connection between what they’re eating and where it comes from is incredibly valuable,” said Durham Professor Jennifer Hoban.
