Lil Ag' University

Lil Ag' University was a virtual STEAM program designed to help students  learn about Urban Agriculture through hands-on and engaging activities. We launched this program in Fall of 2021 and now it's time to celebrate!


 This event is free and open to the public! There will be prizes, and exploratory stations, and raffles...everyone will leave with something. Join us!

Let us know you are coming!!!






This program is made possible through a grant provided by the Will County Community Foundation and the Silver Cross Healthy Community Commission. Our partners include NHBW (Joliet), Lewis University, Will County Land Use & Development and the University of Illinois Extension.
