Continuing Education

Learning In the Country with The Laura & Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program

The University Farm is a beautiful 400-acre property in Hunting Valley, Ohio, that features forests, ravines, waterfalls, meadows, ponds, and a self-contained watershed. Owned by Case Western Reserve University, the farm has a number of buildings designed for educational, research, and recreational purposes.

Farm Continuing Education Program classes take advantage of the spectacular surroundings for inspiration and as a setting for learning about nature, cultivation, and the environment.

The Laura & Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program course offerings generally take place at the farm from May - November (typical courses have included writing non fiction and nature walk). Contact Lorraine Nelson, Program Administrator, 216-368-5145 or email for more information and to register for classes.


Other Farm Educational Offerings

From time to time, the Farm Food Program offers one-day workshops on various topics - gardening, mushroom foraging, beekeeping, composting - that are open to CWRU students, staff and faculty, as well as members of the general public. Information is posted when offerings are planned, and can be found on this page, the Farm's social media, and and our CampusGroups page.
