Keep Dancin to the Beet
Community garden supporters:
I hope you all are planning to attend the ACGA 20th
Anniversary Conference in Philly: Keep Dancin' to the Beet!
The conference is September 30-October 3 at the Holiday
Inn at 4th and Arch Streets. The conference is a GREAT
opportunity to network and find out how to "grow" your
community garden program. Please check out the conference
website and register now: <http://www.libertynet.org/phs/acga/acgaframe.html>
It's a fantastic event. Philadelphia hosted the 10th Anniv. conference
and it was excellent. This year proves to be even better (after all, we've
had ten years to perfect conferences and gardens).
If you plan to come, don't forget to bring your favorite items for the
traditionally FUN and EXPENSIVE (for some) SILENT AUCTION. If you
can't come personally, send your items with someone or direct to the
Philadelphia Green office. Seeds, Books, gardening items, art, clothing,
and all the usual are part of the silent auction. It's a great way to
promote any gardening products you may have, too, for any marketers
out there on line. The audience ususally includes about 350 gardening
Hope to see you all in Philly.
