Environ & Hort Careers

Environmental and Horticulture Careers: Managing Resources for a Hungry Planet **2 Seats Available
Do you imagine yourself in a career that allows you to improve the lives of people around the world, one that empowers you to become an environmental steward of the planet and our natural resources? Do you want to take a hands-on class that lets you get outside and learn by getting dirty? Start on the path to solving the world’s biggest problems: water shortages, global hunger, childhood obesity, and environmental catastrophes. Learn skills that will help you prepare for a high-demand and rewarding career associated with managing environmental pollution, soil usage and fertility as it relates to food production in urban areas, golf course turf management, and the science involved in bringing food from the farm to the grocery store. Past field trips have included Local Foods, Golden Oaks Farm, Loyola Institute of Environment and Sustainability and Hogan’s Farm. Instructors work in Agriculture daily and will show you how food is produced, processed, transported, and prepared for the consumer. This class will meet at The Talking Farm in Skokie each day to allow for hands-on work and labs outside of a classroom setting. Course Code: BPL05100R; Date/Time: June 13-July 2; 8:00 am-12:30 pm; Open to SO, JR, SR: ˝ Credit
