Mark Your Calendars ACGA's 30th Annual Conference:

"Putting Down Roots"
August 6th - 9th, 2009
Franklin Park Conservatory
Columbus, Ohio

Columbus, Ohio's capital city, has a thriving community gardening scene, which has been facilitated since 2000 by Franklin Park Conservatory's Growing to Green program. In 2006, ACGA relocated its national headquarters to Franklin Park Conservatory.

At summer's end in 2009, Franklin Park Conservatory will be opening its new 4-acre Community Garden Campus. This facility will provide the public with a showcase of home gardening, as well as community garden plots for rent.

This summer, ACGA will be moving into new office space, shared with FPC staff, in the newly restored 1915 craftsman caretaker's cottage in the heart of Franklin Park Conservatory's Community Garden Campus. Come to the 30th annual ACGA conference and help ACGA "Put Down Roots" in its new home in Franklin Park Conservatory's new Community Garden Campus!

Columbus, Ohio was recently ranked as the US' 30th most sustainable city. It is a bike-friendly, arts proud, local & "slow"-food loving, midwestern college town.

Registration link will be posted 2009.
