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.
