Updated: May 2, 2023

Fox 32 Chicago's Natalie Bomke covered Urban Autism Solutions' Growing Solutions Farm in a segment that aired on November 16. Natalie visited the farm to see students from the Ray Graham Training Center harvesting and preparing produce for sale. Bomke interviewed Ray Graham special education teacher Tim Makowski and UAS executive director Heather Tarczan in addition to several students.

The farm serves as a vocational training site where students with autism and related challenges work at the farm and learn about urban agriculture while they develop transferrable job skills The experience goes on their resumes and can help students land their very first job, often with the help of the UAS jobs team.
