Talk on Duke Farms and Forging a Sustainable Future


Local nonprofits often have excellent speakers at their annual meetings. A brief update on the nonprofit's accomplishments over the past year is followed by the speaker, followed by refreshments. This Wednesday, at the Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands annual meeting, 7:30 to 9pm, you can hear Michael Catania, Executive Director of Duke Farms, speak on The Evolution of Duke Farms from a 2,750 acres private estate to a public learning center and model of sustainable agriculture, ecological restoration and stewardship. 

Michael gave some of us land stewards a tour of Duke Farms recently. Just 15 miles north of Princeton on Route 206, it's a big place with an enabling endowment and transformative plans, many of which are in the process of being realized.

The meeting takes place in the Education Building at the Mapleton Preserve/D&R Canal State Park Headquarters, 145 Mapleton Road, Kingston.  The event is open to all, and refreshments will be served.  For further details, please call 609-683-0483.
