Advocates for Urban Agriculture’s Connections Working Group has been busy reaching out to Chicago’s diverse communities throughout the summer and fall. It’s been a great success so far, with our network and membership growing by leaps and bounds, but there is much more to come! While during the warmer months we focused on tabling at farmers markets, farm stands and other events across the city, we are now primarily reaching out to community groups by giving presentations about AUA and the benefits of joining and growing our network. The more people that combine their voices, knowledge and resources, the more diverse and empowered Chicago’s urban agriculture movement will become!
We hope that you will join this effort! Please contact AUA Coordinator Billy Burdett at email@example.com to connect to a specific outreach opportunity, or get in touch with one of the Connections Working Group’s co-chairs (Rachel Koch at firstname.lastname@example.org or Melanie Hoekstra at email@example.com) to join the group.
If you have an event or a community meeting that you would like AUA to table or present at, please contact Billy Burdett at the address above.
