WILL COUNTY-This month, After the Peanut launched their urban gardening program at the Fairmont Community Center.  The goal of this program is to teach students how to grow and take care of  their own plants and flowers and introduce them to STEM careers centered around Urban Agriculture. 

Through in-kind donations from Illinicare Health, they are able to make their work more impactful. During a time like this, little things go a long way and help continue the mission of After the Peanut to provide opportunities in STEM for K-12 students and educators. As CEO of After the Peanut, Natalie Coleman has an extensive background in curriculum writing and program development and values impactful partnerships, such as the one with Illinicare Health. 

After the Peanut was founded in 2014 and opened its STEM Center in 2018. The company  focuses on the power of knowledge and education in the face of adversity and challenges. Their goal is to transform communities by increasing opportunities in STEM. You can follow After the Peanut on Facebook or Instagram @afterthepeanut or visit afterthepeanut.com for more information
