Sustainable Agriculture Entrepreneurship Program Graduation

The Sustainable Agriculture Entrepreneurship Summer Program, now in its seventh year, is a partnership between the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences (CHSAS), Wright College, and The Eli’s Cheesecake Company. Students have the opportunity to work at the CHSAS Farm, attend a college-credit class at Wright College and participate in a discussion series at the weekly Eli’s/Wright College Farmers Market. The students have finished their first draft of a cookbook with recipe’s they’ve developed over the summer using locally-sourced ingredients. Many talented and innovative minds behind this unique program spoke at the graduation, as well as an outstanding student from the program, Darius Dixon.

The Eli’s Cheesecake Company would like to thank this years guest speakers:

Chris Koetke, Kendall College

Terra Brockman, The Land Connection
