Our friends at Growing Power run a Farmers for Chicago Program with some great opportunities this spring.
Want to get your hands dirty? Try the Farmers for Chicago Workshop Program, a series of one- and multi-day workshops running through spring. Topics range from composting and beekeeping to marketing and project management.
Already targeted on farming? You could apply to Growing Power’s three-year Farmer Incubator program, which is designed…
for individuals who have made the decision to grow food commercially in the city, have completed a farm training program, know how to farm, and are ready to get started! The goal of this initiative is to support emerging farmers and provide incubation for the urban agriculture industry in Chicago.
