NYC from around the world. Don't miss it!
A few announcements and reminders:
--The deadline for early bird, reduced rate registrations is May 1! If you
can't register by May 1, please do so as soon thereafter as possible. It
helps the planning committee a lot to know how many of you will be here.
--Deadline for housing reservations at Columbia Univ.(the best deal in town)
is June 15).
--The Planning Committee has just confirmed that Karen Hobbs, former ACGA
board member and well known community garden activist,will be our closing

--The ACGA conference is our primary program in ACGA; if you've attended you
certainly know that. If you are new to ACGA and/or community gardening,
break your neck to come. For New York, your presence here will be a sign to
our city that community gardeners are indeed a strong force for renewal.
ACGA conferences are great staff development opportunities if you have to
convince your organization of the worthwhile nature of attending. And the
people are just about the nicest you will ever meet.
--Thanks also to everyone who is leading a workshop or helping in any way.
This conference takes lots of time and energy.
Best and Happy Spring,
Ellen Kirby, President
