President's Message

Dear Members, Supporters/and Board of Directors,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing today to express my deepest gratitude for your unwavering support of the American Community Gardening Association (ACGA). Your commitment to our mission has been invaluable in promoting and sustaining community gardens across the nation.

In particular, I would like to extend a special thank you to one of our most cherished supporters, Annie Massed from Boston, Massachusetts. Your dedication and generosity have made a significant impact on our organization and the communities we serve. Your support continues to inspire us and drives our efforts forward.

As we look ahead, I am excited to remind all community gardeners and farmers about our 46th Annual Conference, which will take place in Wellesley and Boston. This event promises to be an enriching experience, filled with workshops, tours, and networking opportunities designed to help you learn how to sustain and grow your community gardens for the future. We strongly encourage your attendance, as your participation will undoubtedly contribute to the vibrancy and success of this gathering.


Additionally, as we enter the month of June and July, there are several important activities to consider in your garden:


Planting Summer Crops: Now is the time to plant tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and other summer vegetables. Ensure they receive adequate water and sunlight.


Weeding and Mulching: Regular weeding is essential to prevent competition for nutrients. Mulching helps retain moisture and keep weeds at bay.


Harvesting Early Crops: If you planted early spring crops like lettuce, radishes, and peas, they may be ready for harvest. Enjoy the fruits of your labor!

Pest Control: Keep an eye out for pests and take appropriate measures to protect your plants, whether through natural remedies or other means.


Planning for Succession Planting: To ensure a continuous harvest, plan and plant successive crops as space becomes available.


Thank you once again for your ongoing support and dedication to community gardening. We look forward to seeing you at our conference and continuing this journey together.
