Vision

The W. Galen Weston Centre for Food (Weston Centre) follows 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.

This incredible learning centre features Bistro ’67, a full-service, green-certified teaching restaurant and lounge, and Pantry, a unique retail food store offering a delicious assortment of foods prepared by students.

Accommodating students studying in culinary, hospitality, event management, tourism, agricultural and horticultural programs, the Weston Centre features state-of-the-art labs including:

  • Food and beverage pairing labs
  • Classrooms and meeting spaces
  • A demonstration lecture theatre
  • Two greenhouses
  • A growth chamber
  • A head house
  • Bistro '67
  • Pollinator garden
  • Orchard
  • Arboretum
