McHenry County Blog reported that McHenry County College received a half million dollar grant for agriculture.
The gift was announced at the last Board meeting by President Cliff Gabbard.
I asked for details and here is what was provided:
[The] $500,000 grant facilitated through the McHenry County Community Foundation is a contribution toward funding for a proposal around a sustainable urban agriculture educational program that is focused on expanding economic development in our county.
The first component of the proposed program is to conduct intensive research around urban agriculture and wealth creation in agriculture, which we anticipate will be the basis for related educational programming offered by MCC.
