Fresh-grown Produce @ ACC?

It's true!!
ACC has a Continuing Education program in Sustainable Agriculture Entrepreneurship at the Elgin campus!! This program focuses on ecological farming and small farm profitability. Students get real, hands-on experience growing a variety of heirloom fruits, vegetables, and flowers.
Students have also set up Farmer's Markets at the Elgin campus and Highland Business Center to sell their harvest. Beginning in Summer 2017, this program conducted a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) pilot that has been expanded into the Fall. For a small fee, subscribers to the CSA get a weekly delivery of fresh produce from the Elgin farm complete with a description of each item, storage and cooking suggestions.
Fresh, healthy, affordable, and growing, the Sustainable Agriculture program at ACC is on trend! Visit their Facebook page for more photos or learn more about Sustainable Agriculture resources.
