I must say that I am personally very excited about having a few hundred
of you here in my home town next month for the ACGA conference. I'm not
just saying that. I've seen what you all have done in Salt Lake City,
Chicago, New York, Toronto, Birmingham, and Saint Louis, and I can't
wait for you to come and see what we're doing here.

I encourage list members who are coming to Minneapolis next month to
speak up and tell everyone on the list why you're coming. Many of us
have never been to one of these conferences. It's not cheap. I think
it would help if list members could hear a bit about why it's worthwhile
to put out the cash, attend this conference, and support ACGA.

Oh, and register online at www.communitygarden.org.

Hi all-

I started attending ACGA conferences in 1980. I believe that year it was in
Asheville, NC. It featured a pig roast and a square dance and a conference
tour to Biltmore. I haven't been to every conference since then, but I
always feel bad when I miss one.

In spite of the wonderful supportive community that has developed here on
the list serve, community garden leaders often feel swamped, overburdened,
isolated, burnt out, inadequate.... The conference is the best way to find
out that you aren't alone, to learn that you are in fact part of an
expanding movement of really excellent humans. Contrary to popular belief,
there is always something new under the sun, so you may find some
interesting bits of inspiration and innovation right there in a conference
workshop, or, perhaps more likely, in an informal discussion over excellent
conference food.

Come prepared to do some hard intellectual work. We still haven't completed
planning for the Olympic precision rototilling event (including fence
climbing), and the international burnt out community garden leader retreat
house is still on the drawing board. Many of us have considered Maker's
Mark to be the official adult beverage of ACGA since the Louisville
conference. I look forward to sharing some with as many of you as possible.

For those of you, like me, who are beginning to think of yourselves as "old"
community gardeners, I really recommend the conference as a faith-building
activity as we see younger, more energetic folks jumping into the fray. For
you newbies, do take advantage of a movement where the older, more
experienced folks don't just fall face first into the compost pile, but keep
showing up to "till the garden." I've got some new ideas I want to try out
on you this year and look forward to your reaction.

See you at the conference.
