Lincoln Land Community College is offering an agricultural watershed management course, “Conservation Practice Systems II,” and a horticulture course “Landscape Lake Management,” at no cost. These two classes are structured in eight-week modules, the week of Jan. 16 through the week of Mar. 5., and have evening hours. Registration is currently open.
The availability of these courses at no cost is made possible by funding from the U.S. Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College Career Training grant.
“This is a great opportunity for traditional students as well as farm owners, operators and service professionals,” says David Bowman, program coordinator, LLCC Workforce Development. “These courses will help participants enhance agricultural productivity and efficiency while helping protect water and soil resources.”
