Hey Chicagoland gardeners!

Spring is all around us and AUA wants to see and hear about it! Submit your favorite urban agriculture photos for our photo contest – the winner receives a beautiful, handmade gardening-themed notebook! Simply send your photos to in**@au********.org, and we’ll post them (with your photo credits) on our Instagram page – the photo with the most ‘likes’ wins! Anything related to urban gardening or urban agriculture is welcome.

Or maybe you’re a writer? Submit a blog post to in**@au********.org on an urban agriculture-related topic, and the winning submission also receives one of these beautiful notebooks! Topics could include tips for urban growing, reports on current research, relevant policy issues in Chicago or anything urban agriculture related! (See more ideas and blog guidelines here).

We look forward to seeing your pictures, reading your thoughts, and awarding these two beautiful gardening notebooks! Submission deadline is Friday, May 12th, and voting concludes Friday, May 19th. Start sending them in now, and ‘like’ early and often!
