Construction isn't scheduled to begin on Kalamazoo Valley Community College's new Healthy Living Campus until spring of next year. But the first classes could start rolling out as soon as the first quarter of 2014, said Marilyn Schlack, president of KVCC.
"We see ourselves having a great opportunity to start doing something around the vision of the new campus," said Schlack. "In 2014, we will start rolling things out and showing how they're connected to what we're trying to do."
Among the early offerings: Classes on hoophouse growing, which can extend the growing season in colder climates, and a food safety technician program that KVCC is currently developing with the city of Battle Creek, Schlack said.
