There are still spaces available at ACGA's next Growing Communities Workshop
that will be held Friday/Saturday, July 7 & 8 at the Michael Fields
Agriculture Institute in East Troy, Wisconsin  www.michaelfieldsaginst.org
<http://www.michaelfieldsaginst.org/> .

Experience the wonderful Michael Fields Institute and participate in the
workshop, sponsored by CREES Community Food Project grants, that is an
in-depth, hands-on workshop based on ACGA's curriculum for leadership
development. Learn proven strategies that community organizers use to
develop dynamic leaders and create strong communities through a
participatory approach to community building. You will learn the principles
and practices of community building, and how to pass these techniques on to
others in your community by conducting your own workshops. 

This two-day workshop will cover topics including Community Organizing,
Leadership Development, Grassroots Fundraising Basics, Communications
Planning, Coalition Building and is appropriate for community gardeners and
non-profit organizers in general.  Participants receive the "Growing
Communities Curriculum," a 352-page resource workbook ($35 value), which
includes curriculum materials that walk the reader through the process of
conducting training workshops. The Curriculum also addresses Diversity,
Meeting Facilitation and Group Decision-Making, Developing a Board of
Directors, and Grassroots Fundraising - Specific Strategies. Lunch on both
days and an ACGA membership are included.  Low-cost accommodations options
are available at Michael Fields Institute.

Registration is $35, on a sliding scale, depending on what each person can
afford for the two-day workshop. More information, registration and online
payment at: www.communitygarden.org/training.php
