FREE SOIL TESTING PROGRAM

We are excited to announce the launch of our free soil testing program with the support of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service! Open to farmers, community gardeners, and home gardeners, this program will provide up to $1200 per site for soil testing. We hope to rebuild Chicagoland’s soil to address key issues for urban growers cultivating food in an urban setting. Improving soil health = improving community health! For more information, reach out to soil@auachicago.org.
