Duke Food Project Seeks Student Leadership

Group seeking undergraduates interested in leadership roles around food issues, farming, and gardening at Duke

The Duke Food Project is a student organization that oversees the Duke
Campus Farm
and the Duke Community Garden. The Duke Food Project is
seeking undergraduates interested in leadership roles around food
issues, farming, and gardening at Duke.

The organization
is seeking an individual to be the leader of the Duke Community Garden
and another to lead the Duke Campus Farm; each of these roles will be
part of the larger Duke Food Project leadership structure. As more
undergraduates express interest in taking on leadership roles for the
Duke Food Project, current leaders also foresee positions for education,
volunteer coordination, finance planning, and event planning.

Through the Community Garden and the Farm, The Duke Food Project works
to support and practice sustainable, organic farming. They groups sees
issues of food and farming as pertinent to every single person, both on
Duke's campus and in the greater global context. On campus, the Food
Project wants to reconnect students with their food and help them to
understand the issues that are at play each time they pick up their
forks. The group also hopes to use this discussion about food to form a
meaningful bond with Durham community members, who are a vital part of
the larger picture of food issues.

The Duke Food Project is a group
based on education and action, so all they ask from you is enthusiasm!
There is absolutely no experience necessary to take on a leadership role
for the group.

If you have any interest in being a part of the
Duke Food Project leadership or learning more about opportunities with
the group, please contact the current president of the Duke Food
Project, Lauren Brucato, at lauren.brucato@duke.edu.
