UHC Lecture and Film Series UHC presents a yearly series of lectures by members and guests that draw on a wide range of fields and interests such as urban agriculture, biology, ecology, architecture, land use and planning, engineering, construction, product design, and manufacturing. Our goal is to educate our members and the public about today's vital environmental concerns and provide some information and tools on how to address them in ways large and small. Also find podcasts of previous lectures.
UHC Urban Agriculture Workshops Series 2011 UHC's 2011 agriculture workshops included an introductory summer series as well as a bootcamp, designed to give the participant all of the basic skills necessary to start their own urban farm. Our fall series built on those workshops, teaching the more advanced skills necessary to extend the growing season into cooler weather to maximize production in our northern climate.
Urban Habitat Chicago Institute (UHCi) Introducing UHC Institute!
Through workshops, internships, volunteer days, and free lectures, UHC has sought to educate and empower the public with knowledge and skills that will lead to greater urban sustainability efforts.
Building further on these initiatives, in 2012 we are launching UHC Institute - a coherent educational program geared to provide more hands-on training to an even broader public, with a strong focus on urban agriculture. Key components of the program are multi-level workshop series, and field or administrative internships, all designed to build a functional level of independent capacity in participants.
