Advocates for Urban Agriculture (AUA) is a coalition of organizations and individuals interested in learning about, networking and advocating for urban agriculture in the Chicago area.
The group meets quarterly and maintains an array of working groups dedicated to improving the state of urban agriculture in the city of Chicago, with AUA’s Steering Committee acting as its governing body.
Our goal is to make this website a comprehensive hub for projects, activities, information, resources, and opportunities in urban agriculture. As the website grows in tandem with this burgeoning movement, take a look around, and be sure to join as a Member of AUA (free!) if you support what we’re doing. We also encourage you to join AUA’s Google Group; with over 900 members, it’s a great place to connect with Chicago’s urban agriculture community!
