T. Johns in Duncanville, TX is right! Too bad we can't get something like these courses in the DFW area. I'd pay and go to them happily. I'm struggling to grow an urban farm in Euless, Texas right now in this awful heat. Let us know if something comes our way.

Envious that this much needed program is not offered in my area (Dallas-Ft. Worth)or is it and I don't know about it? Outline right on target. Good Luck

I think it's great that urban farming is coming back. When I was a kid it was just normal for folks to have gardens and chickens in the backyard even in the city. I have to wonder at what point did it become against city ordinance to a chicken or two?

This is great. I cant even get my local community college to host any agricultural classes other than flower arranging. (I'm not bashing flower arranging, just lamenting the lack of other aggie programs.)

I hope enough people take advantage of this concept to make it a viable option for the college.

fantastic. I'll be suggesting this to our local Continuing/Adult Education resource. Education is a power force. There is no greater calling than to provide healthy food.
