Christy Webber Landscapes partners with the Windy City Harvest Apprenticeship program, a collaboration between the Chicago Botanic Garden and City Colleges of Chicago’s Daley College satellite school, Arturo Velasquez Institute, to provide a 14 week paid internship at our headquarters and at our retail store, Christy Webber Farm & Garden. Interns go through a rigorous 9 month training program and receive their Certificate in Sustainable Urban Agriculture accredited by the Illinois Community College Board for 31 continuing education credits.
Fall and cooler temperatures are just around the corner. Fall is a great season to perform turf work. As evening temperatures dip towards 50°, seed and aerate your lawn with the appropriate seed.
