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.
Seeds, seedlings, soil amendments, organic fertilizers and healthy, affordable foods will be available. Don’t miss it!!!
Event will be at the Aquaponics Building, near the CSU Library, located on the North end of campus (you can see a map here .
There is a parking lot for the library, look for directional signs
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
