We believe that educating our community is an essential part of improving the lives of our students and their families, and we invite community members to take advantage of OIC’s innovative community education programs. You do not need to be enrolled in an OIC program to participate in our community education classes and workshops.
SPOTLIGHT ON JOHN ABBOTT As he walked through Broad Street Market with his parents and a friend one day, John Abbott wasn’t expecting anything particularly exciting to happen. Imagine his surprise when he came upon OIC’s Container Gardening workshop! With the help of Penn State Master Gardener Mary Houston, John planted his very own container garden that day.
At our free gardening workshop, John learned a little more about science, responsibility, and community. Not bad for a warm spring afternoon.
