Landscape Architect and Outdoor Learning Designer and Hub Farm Project Director Katherine Gill will share experiences from her work with Durham County’s unique platform for project-based outdoor learning. Durham County School System has created a immersive learning center that includes food production gardens, rain gardens, pollinator gardens, beehives, a floating lab, ecological study areas of forest, ponds, wetland and streams, as well as a robust network of collaborators and partners to keep it buzzing

Mohsen will explain the nine programs, and how students participated in hands-on and classroom work.
