Advocates for Urban Agriculture’s Connections Working Group has been busy reaching out to Chicago’s diverse communities throughout the year. 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 mostly focus on tabling at farmers markets, farm stands and other events across the city, colder months are busy too as we reach 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 Director Billy Burdett at firstname.lastname@example.org to connect to a specific outreach opportunity, or join the Connections Working Group if you’re interested in helping out with our broader outreach campaign.
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.
