AUA’s Steering Committee, Working Groups and Coordinator have been very busy recently, working on updating and expanding AUA’s Urban Agriculture Resource Guide, making new connections with folks across the Chicago metro area and beyond who are interested in UA, advocating for UA-friendly policies and programs, and refining AUA’s organizational structure, to name just a few developments.  Find out what AUA has been doing for you and how you can contribute! 

7:00-7:30: Community Networking 
This is your AUA and the Steering Committee wants to hear from you!  What are your thoughts on what AUA is doing?  What do you like, and what would you like to see changed?  This will be a great opportunity for you to share your thoughts and identify ideas and goals that could be put into action through AUA’s Working Groups.

  1. Walmart store on indianopolis ave near Calument….between Chicago and Whiting Indiana is throwing away food and Killing plants (Not watering them) I saw this for my self. When I asked about the pratice the said They would not lower the price and the could not give these items away. There are hungrey people in Chicago and Walmarts is so rich the can throw food away . HELP

  2. This is a great reason to get behind our Local Food Economy campaign. Neighborhood-based, locally owned businesses tend to be much more accountable and responsive to their community and its needs. Hover over the “Projects” tab above and click on “Local Food Economy Campaign” to find out how you can contribute to this effort!
