The Land Connection

206 N Randolph St, Suite 400, Champaign, IL, USA

The Land Connection’s mission is to train farmers in resilient and restorative farming techniques; inform the public about the sources of our food and why that matters; and work to protect and enhance farmland so that we, and generations to come, will have clean air and water, fertile soil, and healthy, delicious food. The Land Connection envisions community-based food systems in which every farmer has the opportunity and resources to protect our environment by growing food in a sustainable manner and every person has access to local, nutritious foods and knows how to prepare them.

In addition to farmer and community education, The Land Connection also organizes and runs the Champaign Farmers Market which takes place every Tuesday from May through October in downtown Champaign.
