A work study opportunity is available to one qualified candidate. In exchange for 25-30 hours of work, the work study candidate’s course fee will be reduced to $450. Work will include assisting the instructor with class preparation, classroom set-up and clean-up, loading and unloading class supplies, making copies, assisting with the recipe book, and taking photos during class to share on social media at least three days throughout the course. The candidate will be required to meet the instructor at 8:30 am each class meeting date as well as other dates (typically the Friday’s prior to class) to forage for plant specimens which will also serve as a valuable, additional learning opportunity for the applicant. Ideally the candidate lives in or very near Naperville, and must commit to attending every class.
