UCCS Grain School


Grain School is a one-of-a-kind annual event that brings together educators, health professionals, scientists, farmers, bakers, millers, brewers, distillers, chefs, food citizens, students and community leaders. UCCS’ tiered approach to teaching and learning as both a university and community course, provides an expansive platform for lively and inspirational exchange.

For 2019 we expand our curriculum and hands-on workshops and further explore production systems and grain at the confluence of water, soil, climate, and people to create health, community and prosperity. We also focus in on indigenous grains, grain literacy in schools, economics and infrastructure needs, the roles of women and beginning farmers in grain production, the artisanship of working with grain in food, and the establishment of a regional Grain Chain organization!
