Black Oaks Center (BOC) will be partnering with The Mission Continues (TMC) and Chicago State University (CSU) to train veterans in commercial farming and permaculture beginning this Spring!  BOC has successfully trained farmers from 2013 to 2015 thanks to the Beginning Farmer Rancher Development Grant award to cultivate urban farmers. We are looking forward to collaborating to take this training to the next level.
