About community gardening

The American Community Gardening Association (ACGA) links over 2000 gardens across the US and Canada, from large urban farms to tiny pocket parks.  We believe there isn't "one correct way" to garden in community. Instead, there are lots of right answers. Just as in ecology, we find strength, sustainability, and resilience in the diversity of our gardens and members. Visit "About us" to find out moreOne thing is certain. Nobody can do a community garden alone. We need one another. Join us.


The best way to support our mission is become a member.  LEARN MORE ( our friendly Membership Chair Charlie Monroe (in the photo) will be glad to help you.)

Community garden questions?

ACGA is a great place to ask questions and share perspectives about all aspects of community gardening. You can ask us directly via our contact form, post a note on our "Common Ground" forum, buy copies of our annual magazine addressing different community garden topics at our shop, or visit our Tool Shed page for links and references.  Last but not least, you can post your garden or find a garden using our interactive garden map
