Upcoming Events

Monticello College 2019 Events

Every year Monticello College holds a series of events on campus for locals and visitors alike. While we are a work college, which is clear from our Annual Work Party and the Youth For America Retreat—we are still a college and have a rigorous academic program which is reflected in our offerings to the public such as the Lyceum Lecture Series, the Permaculture Design Certification and our annual fall concert.

Review our Schedule of events and join us on campus. Bring your boots and fishing pole.

"I took the summer course 'Georgics: The Soil is Everything,' this July on the Monticello College campus under Dr. Shanon Brooks. It was phenomenal! I learned so much from Dr. Brooks on not only the criticality of the soil for growing food, but also many other subjects (bee keeping, the use of herbs, soap making, eating healthy, etc.). Dr. Brooks has a knack of presenting complex subjects in an easy to understand presentation. I look forward to applying the principles I learned in class to my own garden. I gained a better understanding of becoming Georgic and anxiously look forward to the next class."
