JANET CARTER BIOGRAPHY
"My name is Janet Carter and I work as an Outreach Coordinator at
Philadelphia Green, The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, where I have
helped people start community gardens for the last 14 years. As a
long-time instructor, a minority woman, and a community gardener myself,
I feel I have a lot of varied and useful experience to offer the ACGA
Board. I was active in helping to set up the ACGA National Office in
Philadelphia, and have spent a lot of time giving technical assistance
to people who write, call or visit there.
As a former Board member active with the membership and nominations
committees, I know enough about the system to be able to get right to
work on important issues. I hope you will support me in my bid for a
position on the board. Thank you!"
