The School of Hospitality & Horticultural Science (HHS) is Durham Region’s first-ever post-secondary presence focused on the field-to-fork concept, which is based on the harvesting, storage, processing, packaging, sale and consumption of food – in particular the production of local food for local consumers.
Durham College has adopted this concept and applied it to a diverse range of programs that crossover traditional academic schools with the curriculum, faculty expertise and equipment required to implement field to fork built into several of the college’s programs.
Capitalizing on classroom and lab equipment availability, select courses may be offered at any of our locations including the Oshawa and Whitby campuses and the WC, the heart of the college’s field-to-fork vision.Development of the WC and Whitby campus will continue to grow with the creation of a pollinator garden, agriculture planting and demonstrator gardens supported by growth initiated in our greenhouse as well as curriculum and student support.
