Doris Duke, locavore?

Item Description

In early 1992 Doris became interested in converting Duke Farms to an organic farm. An assortment of correspondence, newspaper articles and booklets outline recommendations for organic vegetable growing, how to market the organically grown vegetables, and how to make it profitable.

Her early interest in organic farming set the stage for the future of Duke Farms. Doris instructed in her will that Duke Farms was to be used as a model of environmental stewardship and inspire visitors to become informed stewards of the land.
