Re: RE: WHY I'M ATTENDING THE ACGA CONFERENCE

Dear Friends, 
 
I would most certainly attend, but I'm really scrambling to hang on finanicially, and otherwise, back home in NYC, and cannot get away. It is my loss, and if you can manage to get away to this conference, you absolutely should. 
 
The ACGA conferences are a tremendous way to see beyond your garden gates, to swap war stories and learn new ways of doing things - find wheels that have already been invented to slap on your wagon.  The St. Paul/Minneapolis crowd are the absolute best, for both spirit and community garden quality, and I know they'll run a great convention.  I know I was energized from the convention that I attended. 
 
On a personal note, seeing you all, as I did with my late wife back in 2002 at the  NYC convention, would be sometihing that I'd love to do, but I can't this time around. Life's gotten in the way for me. 
 
As always, you guys are my heart, and I really hope I'm around for the next ACGA conference - so I can hear the stories from the upcoming bash in Minneapolis/St. Paul and be green with envy.  
 
Everbest, 
Adam Honigman
Volunteer, 
Clinton Community Garden
