Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Community & Neighborhood Development, Economic Development, Environment, Environmental Beautification, Food, Food, Agriculture & Nutrition

Mission: The organization serves Boston's 250 community gardens which directly involve 10,000 individuals and families. As they garden together, neighborhoods become more cohesive, and pride grows in place of littered vacant lots. Community gardens provide a source of inexpensive, nutritious food, and rewarding personal experience, but also are the result of shared collective effort of people working together. Garden Futures provides education and resources support programs so the gardeners and the garden-owning organizations can continue to maintain this second park system in Boston.

The American Community Garden Association is the premier source of education and information and support for both old and new Community Gardens in North America.
The American Community Garden List Serve Digest connects professionals and gifted and amateur gardeners and community organizers every single day and promotes healthy urban communities.
Garden Mosiacs is only one of the programmes that encourages young people to investigate and explore the natural world in gardens.
The American Community Gardening Association advocates across America for the benefits that urban gardens confer on Communities.
ACGA plays and important role in educating gardeners, administrators and community activists on all aspects of urban gardening.
Once a year the ACGA holds a convention which draws gardeners from across North America. They come to learn, to meet, to see and to confirm the value of Community Gardens. If the ACGA didn't exist, it would have to be invented. Luckily it does exist and it is a great non-profit.
