American Community Gardening Association 2021 conference

Friday, September 24, 2021

Love gardening? Believe communities grow stronger when we grow together? The American Community Gardening Association’s 2021 conference is just what you’re looking for! ACGA’s 2021 conference will take place from Thursday, Sept. 23, through Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021. The focus is on community gardening, with educational workshops, garden tours, lively discussions, yummy food, and even a silent auction featuring unexpected treasures every garden needs. This year’s theme is “Gardening in Challenging Times.”

The pandemic has shown how community gardens help people and neighborhoods cope with adversity. It's reminiscent of the Victory Gardens of WWII, and urban gardens that became islands of peace in neighborhoods torn by gang warfare in the 1980s. Presenters will explore this inspiring dimension of community gardening, including specific tips on how gardens can cope with Covid-19. Other diverse workshops will address more traditional topics, including eco-friendly food growing and eating; design, management, and policy for successful and sustainable gardens; fundraising; inclusion; and effective community-building strategies. Hampton and surrounding communities host thriving community gardens. For full conference details, visit ACGA's conference webpage at www.communitygarden.org.
