About

The Durham Public Schools Hub Farm is a 32 acre plot of land in North Durham that is owned by the public school system but was not being used in 2012. In collaboration with school administrators, community partners, teachers, students and a strong , citizen group, Katherine Gill has led the vision, development, design, and implementation of turning this fallow piece of land into a district-wide farm and outdoor learning lab for the Durham Public School System.

Now in it’s fourth year of operation, the Hub Farm hosts approximately 4,000 students per year to engage in hands-on learning opportunities at the Hub Farm. Katherine has led community design workshops, mentored high school interns, managed staff and developed partnerships with programs and organizations both within the school system and with the Durham County Public Health Department and other local organizations. Her work to develop, design, run, and make this grass-roots initiative a reality is visionary and has developed into a model that can be replicated throughout the school system and other districts in the state.
