Welcome to Table Talk: informational sessions on topics related to food security and environmental sustainability.

Join the conversation as we learn about the environment, food, gardening and sustaining a healthy community that grows together. Community members and residents across Durham Region are invited to be participants and/or presenters. Together we can learn and apply new skills at home and in our community.

We want to hear from you! If you have questions, a topic to suggest or are interested in being a presenter, please contact our Community Development Coordinator at The Nourish and Develop Foundation.

Due to COVID-19, these workshops are currently delivered virtually via Zoom. If you would like assistance in setting up Zoom, we’d suggest starting here. Pre-registration for each Table Talk is required; click here or call us to reserve your spot. Sponsored spots are offered; please contact us to inquire about their availability.

To stay informed about our upcoming Table Talk events and other programs and volunteer opportunities at TNDF, subscribe to our newsletter, or follow us on Facebook or Instagram.

This series is made possible thanks to our collaborative efforts with Durham Integrated Growers.
