More on this Community Garden Toolkit
The primary content of this kit is provided by the American Community Gardening Association (ACGA). ACGA promotes community gardening to further its mission of building community by increasing and enhancing community gardening and greening across the United States and Canada.
ACGA acts as a clearinghouse for volunteers and independent organizers to find community gardens and to add their gardens to the national databank of community gardens; and to provide related information and materials to persons interested in starting gardens. In addition, ACGA holds annual conferences, trainings, and monthly teleconferences to help promote and encourage community gardening. Visit www.communitygarden.org for more information.
AARP and HandsOn Network encourage people to find ways to make a difference in their community. AARP, HandsOn Network and ACGA are not responsible for the organization of these events or the choice of site, organizers, volunteers or any incident that may occur at any gardening site, nor does AARP, HandsOn Network or ACGA design, supervise, control or monitor these events in any way.
