When communities are spread out, it’s important to have a home base to come together. The Central Illinois Connection Center, located in Chatsworth, aims to connect rural communities across the area by bringing together youth, senior citizens and members of the agriculture community. Outreach includes:

  • Activity stations where kids can learn about art, agriculture, history and more
  • Farm-to-fork dinners and tasting events
  • Food, Family Farm Expos featuring local food, products and services
  • Free arts and crafts workshops
