A free sustainable food class for high school students will run throughout the summer from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursdays from June 8 to July 27, at Triton College in River Grove. Faculty and community gardeners from Triton's Horticulture/Sustainable Agriculture department will teach the class by utilizing a new greenhouse and garden on the east side of 5th Avenue.

This free series of workshops runs under a grant from the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and will help students better understand where our food comes from and why we need to protect the source of our food supplies.

Registration is limited. To enroll, please contact the School of Continuing Education at 708-456-0300, Ext. 3500. For all other questions about the program, please contact 708-456-3500, Ext. 3395.
