January 4, 2019

Durham College has received a $1M donation from the W Garfield Weston Foundation. A Durham release states that the funds will support the construction of a post-harvest and storage facility, greenhouse expansion, the implementation of container farming, and experiential learning opportunities at the W Galen Weston Centre for Food. “This grant will allow for more food production, new opportunities to teach non-traditional farming and, most importantly, more chances for students to gain critical skills that will put them in demand upon graduation,” said Weston Foundation Director Eliza Mitchell. Durham (ON)
