Lil Ag' University

Lil Ag' University is a virtual STEAM program designed to help students in 4th-8th grade learn about urban agriculture through hands-on and engaging activities. We are launching our Spring 2022 session March 1, 2022. 

This program is made though a grant provided by the Will County Community Foundation and in partnership with NHBW (Joliet), Lewis University, and Will County Land Use & Development and the University of Illinois Extension.
