RE: Conference???


There were a number of very exciting events, tours and sessions which marked
Atlanta as a superb conference. As one person reported: "I go to other
conferences for information; I come to ACGA conference for inspiration." I
couldn't agree more. 

Some of the Board members and committee staffers mentioned gathering
insights, inputs and highlights of the conference. These would most likely
include the all wonderful annecdotes (such as a sincronized swimming team
which spelled out ACGA on Friday night in the pool!) from the weekend, as
well as references to the working sessions and sharing groups will lead the
list. Those will most likely appear on this list as well as in ACGA's
Community Greening Review. 

In a couple of weeks, after folks have returned to their desks and can edit
the bar napkins and sidebars of their programs, there should be some fun
glimpses of the events and information exchanged. Of course, and
unfortunately for all not present, these highlights cannot compare to the
excited atmosphere and gracious hospitality of the Atlanta conference. For
that we can only repeat the common phrase repeated again and again of our
host organization - Georgia Extension and the Atlanta Urban Gardening
Program - not to mention the powerhouse of Bobby Wilson, and the tireless
staff supporting the conference. 

In solidarity,

For those that just got back from Atlanta, what sort of new and interesting
things stood out from the presentations?  Did you get to visit any
interesting gardens?  Inquiring minds would love to know :-).
