Pack your bags, we are all going to Houston, Texas!

The American Community Gardening Association (ACGA) will host our National Conference, September 27-31, 2023. If you are interested in urban agriculture then you should be a part of the amazing conference. This is the perfect opportunity for you to learn, share, network and have a stomping good time with all types of people in the greening movement. We welcome everyone to this conference, with its inspiring theme of “Celebrating The Diversity In Growing". Community Gardens are diverse and inclusive, we value diversity of age, race, gender, orientation, perspective and approach. If you have not yet registered, please go to our website and sign up.


See Y’all in H-Town,

Cathy Walker, President
