Triton College is sponsoring a new Sustainable Agriculture Technology program. This free experiential 4-day summer camp, running July 14-17, is designed to provide high school students with a hands-on perspective of the local food system.

Participants will learn about opportunities in the emerging green economy through site visits to urban farms, conversations with innovative entrepreneurs, and tastings at local restaurants. The way that we think about food and farming is being turned up-side-down.

  • Camp materials: Provided.  24 hours of class time. 
  • Cost: Free
