The ACGA has provided numerous resources for my professional career in Extension at the University of Missouri. The depth and breadth of the organization's experience has assisted me greatly as I have provide advice on how to start and sustain community gardens to community members and other Extension professionals. I also believe that the ACGA embodies the spirit of community gardening and promotes the activity as a means for people to be directly engaged in improving their lives and finding meaning through gardening in community. Their Growing Communities curriculum is especially helpful and is full of tools to engage and include people in gardening. I have attended conferences sponsored by the ACGA and have met and learned from committed individuals from the US and Canada.
