Learning is Timeless

Learning is Timeless

Older adults explore a variety of workshops focused around health, horticulture, and aging issues.  Workshops are offered year round by Extension educators, Molly Hofer (Family Life), Ron Wolford (Horticulture), and Veronica Aranda (Community Health). Each participant has the opportunity to engage in learning for personal enrichment and build new friendships.

Some of the workshop topics include brain exercise, health, gardening, book club, couponing, and laughter – just to name a few.

What the participants are saying…..

“The U of I Extension programs are so beneficial to so many people, and genuinely so.  They are always there to help, to answer, and to research for us.  There is also a great cultural exchange among the participants.”


“The community as a whole benefits from the various workshops provided.  The information is useful for the participants and also to family members and friends who receive ‘second hand’ benefits.”


Workshops are held at the main office located at 8751 S. Greenwood Ave., Suites 112-122, Chicago, IL 60619.  Workshop brochures are published quarterly and registration is available online.
