Are you looking for a way to reach a new audience at your school?  Make plans to attend the “Teaching about Urban Agriculture” workshop to be held at one of the top examples of urban ag education in Chicago, Gary Comer Youth Center, to learn the basic principles of urban agriculture that you should be incorporating into your Horticulture and Plant Science courses.
