For the second year, Routes2Farm, a collaboration of Farmer Alliances in the regional “foodshed” of greater Chicago, is organizing the Beginning Farmer of the Year Award. Illinois Stewardship Alliance has been asked to submit a 3 minute video featuring a beginning farmer from our organization, and we need your help! Finalists will receive a $100 honorarium (and more!), and will move onto the final round for a chance to win the Beginning Farmers of the Year Award and a $1000 cash prize.
If you are a beginning farmer that is a member of Illinois Stewardship Alliance, our Buy Fresh Buy Local Central Illinois Chapter, or our Illinois Organic Growers Association, we want you to submit a video to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31st, for a chance to win!
All the details are below!
