A Bountiful Community
Public discussion and a sharing of local bounty with Durham Farmers' Market board members and local farmers and food entrepreneurs Danielle White of Chocolatay, Tom Hurtgen of Hurtgen Meadows Farm, and Noah Ranells of Fickle Creek Farm on the role of a local farmers' market in the community. From climate (and pandemic) resilience to economic, environmental and health impacts and on to the agora effect, how does a strong local farmer's market contribute to the strength and flourishing of a community? And what are the challenges in making sure this bounty can be shared with all? Students from the Fall 2023 French 308 Manger class will lead the public discussion with these farmers and entrepreneurs, who will be sharing with us a sampling of some of the farmers' market bounty.
