Early bird registration for ACGA Conference OPEN thru July 14!

Join us for the 35th anniversary of the premier networking event for community garden professionals and practitioners!

Chicago is hosting the 2014 AMERICAN COMMUNITY GARDENING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE August 7-10, 2014 at the world famous Field Museum. The theme for this year’s 35th anniversary conference is “Gateway to Community in the City of Neighborhoods” which reflects the geographic makeup of our fair city, which was also the birthplace of ACGA in 1979.  (And did you know that “Chicago” is actually derived from a French rendering of the Miami-Illinois word shikaakwa, translated as “wild onion” or “wild garlic”, which grew — and grows — here abundantly?)

The conference will provide over 40 workshops, round tables and tours highlighting best practices and innovative strategies from presenters from all over the world. This conference is essential for those interested in starting, maintaining or growing a successful community garden or community garden program.

Conference Schedule & Presentations

And don’t forget to celebrate with us at the Garfield Park Conservatory for our Garden Soiree (Friday, August 8) with delicious and sustainable food and beverages, live music, and the chance to win fabulous auction items!

REGISTER HERE  (Remember, early bird registration rates end July 14!)

Don’t miss special offers for Master Gardeners and Organizational Partners from out of town, available thru July 8!

Scholarships for local gardeners as well as exhibitor and sponsorship opportunities are also available!

We’re sad to announce that due to inclement weather forecasts for both Friday evening and the Saturday evening rain date, along with illness and a few other obstacles coming together to make the perfect storm, AUA has no choice but to postpone our Rooftop Movie & Mingle Night to a TBD date in July.  Please keep an eye out for an announcement coming in the next few days, and we’ll look forward to seeing you then!
