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.
Summer is in full swing. The 1st few weeks after planting are crucial to the long term health of your newly installed landscape. Be sure to keep your lawn and landscape watered throughout the warm season.
