Work has officially started on the new Ag Complex at Heartland Community College made possible in part by a $2 million pledge from McLean County Farm Bureau.
Once complete, the building will provide dedicated classroom space for agriculture studies, plus indoor and outdoor lab space and greenhouses.
The McLean County Farm Bureau Ag Lab will provide flexible learning space for Heartland Students as well as community groups and K-12 learning experiences like summer camps and field trips.
The Ag Complex has a projected completion date of 2023 and will be located on the west side of the Heartland campus.
Heartland currently offers Associate in Science, Associate in Arts and Associate in Applied Science degrees in agriculture, as well as certificates in Agriculture Business, Agronomy, Precision Agriculture and Regenerative Agriculture.
