The New Year is shaping up to be a busy one with 21 new classes just posted to our calendar.  As part of these selections, 21 Acres is pleased to launch a new partnership with Everett Community College and Cascadia Community College to offer Beekeeping and Backyard Farming classes through their catalog.

According to Gretchen Garth, 21 Acres’ Board President, “Partnerships with organizations such as this one with the community colleges make sense as they foster collaboration and creativity and allow us to reach more people who may be interested in sustainable issues and to contribute to keeping our programming costs low.”

If you know of any organization interested in exploring partnerships, please contact us and share your ideas, generalinfo@email.org.

21 Acres designs classes along the themes of Growing, Eating and Living to help people learn how to live more sustainable lives. Here is the current list of classes for the first quarter of 2014:
