My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for American Community Gardening Association, Columbus, OH, USA
In my work in Northern Virginia I have been able to utilize the resources of ACGA and their staff to help residents develop community gardening projects. We have started up pilot community gardens in a non-English, Spanish speaking community in Arlington VA, and for an African American community in Alexandria. The materials and resources have been used by Master Gardeners, food bank volunteers, Cooperative Extension staff and urban agriculture proponents to lead residents to better nutrition, knowledge of good water and land stewardship practices, and to greater community viability. It has been a pleasure to work with the board and to share in ACGA's success.
