The Center for Sustainable Community is located near Kankakee and is committed to the discovery and creation of sustainable ways of living. The organization provides seminars and workshops as well as other educational and experiential events focusing on areas such as green technology, permanent agriculture (permaculture), holistic health and healing, and the experience of community living.
The Center invites everyone to their seminars (here's a calendar link). The next one is on Permaculture Orchard Design and Maintenance on Feb. 16, focusing on the planting and care of fruit trees. There is a $35 fee for this seminar.
