The Dwight “Buzz” Hill Education Center opened in 2006 at the fairgrounds and houses the Orleans County Cornell Cooperative Extension staff offices along with two large classrooms and a smaller conference room. The Trolley Building Kitchen has undergone recent renovation and provides a modern commercial teaching kitchen for workshops, cooking, preserving, light food processing, and concessions. These spaces are available to local community groups interested in hosting meetings or events. See below for more information on amenities and pricing or contact the Extension office at 585-798-4265 for details.
The Roberts Conference Room comfortably seats 16 and includes a small kitchenette with a sink and microwave. It has one moderate sized white board that can also serve as a screen for an LDC projector. This space is ideal for meetings or small sized training sessions in which access to a sink is needed.
The Harrington Classroom is the largest classroom in the Education Center. It includes a divider than can split the room into two areas if needed. This classroom can comfortably fit about 40 people. The classroom features two large white boards and a pull down screen for an LCD projector. The table and chairs can be configured in a variety of designs including classroom style, meeting circle, and stations (two tables together).
The Curtis Classroom is slightly smaller than the Harrington Classroom and comfortable seats 30-35 people depending upon the table configuration. The classroom includes one large white board, one small white board, and one pull down screen.
The Trolley Building Kitchen offers a Health Department inspected 24′ x 28′ commercial work space. The kitchen features a large 3-piece sink, hand wash sink, 2 oven/10 burner commercial stove with fire suppression hood, and 2-door commercial refrigerator and freezer space. It also includes a commercial dishwasher and two stainless steel islands with prep sinks. The serving window allows access to the adjacent 50′ x 70′ event room. Renter must provide kitchenware (utensils, pots/pans, dish soap, dish towels, small appliances, etc.) and electrical cords.
While the kitchen supports Extension work, it is intended to achieve a greater goal of increasing the consumption of local fruit and vegetable products. Growers and food entrepreneurs are encouraged to consider the kitchen for processing foods into ready-to-eat products or hosting workshops for consumers. The kitchen meets all food and safety codes.
