AUA’s Chicago Urban Agriculture Resource Guide was developed as a tool for those wishing to participate as active members in the urban agriculture community. Whether growers are experienced or just beginning, searching for resources for their existing project, or starting a new project on their own, almost anyone involved in urban agriculture can come to this guide for helpful resources to expand their knowledge on the topic. See AUA’s Mini-Resource Guide for a one page snapshot, and click below for our full, FREE guide!
