  1. Here are three events that may interest you, they are all workshops so we decided to throw them together! Finding an Internship can be difficult, as there are many different kinds of majors with various requirements to give you credits. This will take place 5PM-6PM at the Career Center at Illinois, they said: “Still looking for an internship, but not sure where to start, what to look for, or what to do? Come to us, we’ll show you the way”. Sounds pretty convincing to me!
  2. Taking place at the Illinois Campus Recreation from 5:30PM-7PM there is a meal prep series! This is super duper important y’all. Who has time to cook three meals 7 days a week in the midst of papers, tests, jobs, internships, friends, etc? It never ends! Illinois Campus Recreation gives a bit of information on their workshop: “Join partners from McKinley Health Center and Campus Recreation for a 3-class cooking series teaching students to engage in cost-effective, time-saving, and nutritious meal preparation.
    Don’t forget your takeaway containers! All participants will enjoy sampling 27 recipes and will receive ample portions to take home!
    Classes will be held in the ARC Instructional Kitchen! Cost is $25.”  It teaches, and it gives you food to take home. That’s as good of a deal as any!
  3. Lastly, From 6:30PM-8:30PM you could be learning all about Website Design from the Champaign Public Library working with Paul Kaiser. If you are considering independent business ideas or a marketing position, really any career in an office, knowing Website Design is a great leg up on the competition.

This is a trip to be certain of before deciding. The Trip to Yerkes Observatory will take you all the way to Wisconsin. If you don’t know what the Yerkes Observatory looks like, pop that title into Google and admire the architecture! It’s closing for a while so this may be your last chance to visit for a while, if ever. 

“It’s That Time Of The Year Again!!!

Let’s go to Yerkes Observatory!!! The University of Chicago is closing the observatory at the end of September, and we don’t know when or if it will open again.

So far the plan is to leave Parkland using one of the Parkland buses at 6 am. Drive there for the morning tour. Afterwards get some lunch at a place that serves food (place to be decided). If you want to give suggestions on where to eat while down there, feel free to post it here and we will consider it. When we are done having fun we will drive back to Parkland and arrive around 7pm. Email us at parklandastronomyclub AT gmail DOT com.”

Oh my, if I weren’t in the Chicago area I’d be at this event in a heartbeat. This class teaches how to make Kombucha at home, and herbal flowers seem to be included in this process! Look at that beautiful glass of homemade brewed Kombucha with a flower in it, stunning. I also like the image quality but that’s just my photographer coming out. Definitely, a must go to!

“Kombucha is a fermented, carbonated tea drink attributed to promoting healthy digestion and vitality. It has become a staple beverage for many people today, and it should be! Most kombucha is packed with probiotics, herbal infusions, and antioxidents + it makes you feel good.

At our Kombucha with Flowers class, farmer Holly (a long-time kombucha home brewer) will teach the class how kombucha works, and how to make their own at home using simple ingredients and supplies. The class will take a short farm tour and will harvest herbal flowers from Delight Flower Farm to brew the tea. We will go through the entire process from start to finish, and participants will be able to sample home brew kombucha and herbs.

Cost: $20

Date and time: September 23rd, 6pm-7:30pm

Location: 4410 N Lincoln Ave, Champaign, IL 61822 (we share our land with Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery)
