AUA is delighted to announce the launch of our Farmer to Farmer Mentorship Program! This initiative seeks to match beginning farmers with experienced farmers to share in their wealth of knowledge and foster mutually beneficial relationships.

Additionally, this program seeks to expand: educational opportunities for growing food in Chicago; access to quality, safe food; skills for environmental conservation of soil, water, and air in our region; and the web of collective power and solidarity amongst Chicago area farmers.

Applications will open up later in the season after our first cohort has completed the program. You can still review this detailed program description. Questions? Contact Viviana at
