Kishwaukee College's Community Education program has launched a new Agriculture Workshop Series that highlights various aspects of farming and food production.
The new series features several different classes this summer that will teach participants self-sustaining farming practices, which can be turned into entrepreneurial opportunities. Local experts will explore topics such as vegetable gardening, raising sheep, beekeeping, and more. All courses will take place virtually.
'Food and farming offer a lot of opportunities for our local community,' said LaCretia Konan, Dean of Workforce & Community Education. 'These courses allow anyone with an interest in agriculture to take initiative and create a positive impact for themselves and their environment.'
The following courses will be available in the coming weeks:
