Chicago Training Spaces Open

There are still some spaces open at ACGA's first training on January 31 and February 1 in Chicago related to the new Growing Communities Curriculum. Participants are already registered from Chicago, St. Louis, Baltimore, Nashville, and Cincinnatti.  JOIN US.
This fall, the American Community Gardening Association unveiled their new curriculum for leadership development entitled Growing Communities Curriculum: Community Buklding & Organizational Development through Community Gardening.  This curriculum provides an in-depth exploration of the practices and strategies community organizers can use to develop dynamic leaders and create strong communities through a participatory approach to community building.  The Chicago Botanic Garden is hosting a workshop led by Kendall Dunnigan and Betsy Johnson.  The focus will be to train community gardening facilitators who, in turn, will share this information with their neighborhood garden leaders.
The 2-day workshop will be held at the Chicago Botanic Garden on January 31st and February 1st.  The program outline is as follows:
Day 1 
Overview of Growing Communities Curriculum
Community Organization Workshop
Workshop Facilitation Methods & Facilitation
Group Workshop Preparation
Day 2
Group Presentations of Curriculum workshops
Analysis & Discussion of Workshop Presentation Process
The cost for the workshop is $75 per program participant , and includes a copy of the Curriculum and Cultivating Community Principles & Practices ($45 value), continental breakfast and lunch on Thursday and Friday, and dinner on Thursday.  Attendees are responsible for their own hotel arrangements, which can be made at a number of nearby hotels.  The most reasonable is the Red Roof Inn at a rate of $57.99 + tax per night.  Reservations for the Red Roof can be made by calling (847) 205-1755. 
Register by sending the form below and your enrollment fee payable to the Chicago Botanic Garden.  Also let Eliza know by email or phone that the registration is on its way.  If you have any questions about the training or cannot afford housing, please contact Eliza Fournier at (847) 835-8352 or efournier@chicagobotanic.org or Betsy Johnson at (617) 542-7696 or betsy@gardenfutures.org
