Join the Seasoned Spoon Café and Trent Vegetable Gardens for a campus farm-to-table tour as part of Disorientation Week at Trent in collaboration with OPIRG Peterborough.

We’ll discuss the work these organizations are doing to build an alternative food system at Trent and all the ways you can get involved through experiential learning, research projects, workshops, volunteering, community meals and more.
