COURSE NUMBERCECUL03.01 What does it really take to make your precious cup of coffee? Instructor Cody Fergusson will guide you through the journey of a coffee bean from the farm to your cup. Lectures will explore the history of coffee, harvesting, processing, roasting and brewing as well as industry practices, skills and culture. Students will also participate in coffee roasting, brewing and tasting/cupping and will also take home a sample of beans they roast together. Adults 18 and older are welcome

COURSE NUMBERCECIV02.01 Curious about collective impact, heath, education and financial security in Waco? If you live in greater Waco and want to learn about what community leaders are doing in your city, then look no further. This book club will be completely online, facilitated through a private LinkedIn group, to allow for maximum participation but its purview will be highly local. You choose how much or how little time you want to invest. We'll read books related to financial security, health, education, collective impact and more and discuss how we can incorporate these ideas into making our community better. This book club is part of a partnership with Prosper Waco and is open to anyone interested in the success of the greater Waco area. A PBC Guru facilitator will select the book list from which participants will vote on six, reading one book every two months. The facilitator will post weekly blog posts to stimulate conversation. Apart from the annual registration fee, participants will purchase their own books.

COURSE NUMBERCECIV01.02 Where does our water come from? How is it treated for household consumption? Where does it go after we have used it? These are questions that Nora Schell, program coordinator of the Lake Waco Wetlands, will explore with you during a walking tour of the Dissolved Air Flotation Plant (DAF), Mount Carmel Water Treatment Facility and Waco Metropolitan Area Regional Sewerage System. Bring your walking shoes for this tour of our urban water cycle! Participants must provide their own transportation between sites. Adults may register (and must attend) with up to two children 12 years or older.
