This past summer, the Duke Campus Farm crew visited nearby Frog Pond Farm owned by Larry and Libby Bohs. Larry is a part-time professor at Duke University and a part-time farmer – an enviable career path, in my opinion.
This visit in early summer, which I wrote about here, has been the source of inspiration for the Campus Farm workers. Larry and Libby have a gorgeous, productive, innovative and highly sustainable farm. Frog Pond models many of our future plans for the Duke Campus Farm: incorporating permaculture such as fruit trees and bushes, integrated pest and weed management, and practicing no-till.
