It’s been quite the year at The Land Connection. We had record attendance at the Organic Grain Conference and Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day. With the help of United Way of Champaign County, we provided a triple match for WIC and Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program recipients, giving them more buying power at the Champaign Farmers Market. We worked with Thirdside to launch a new website and began working on new online courses and resource portals for farmers and consumers. We’ve done a lot, and you’ve been there with us every step of the way.
With #GivingTuesday coming up we want to hear from you. You’ve attended our workshops, joined in on our webinars, shopped at our market, and enjoyed our fundraisers. Tell us about your experience! Why do you support The Land Connection? What is your favorite program/event that we host? What did you learn this year? What do you like most about our local food system?
