Join us at the Growing Communities Conference September 26th and 27th
Making a successful community garden requires building physical infrastructure (such as raised beds, water systems, & compost bins), but it also requires building the human infrastructure — the community that will keep the garden growing for years to come. Representatives from the American Community Garden Association will be coming to San Diego to facilitate a great 2-day Conference that will focus on how to build the “community” within our community gardens. You can apply to be an attendee or volunteer for the Conference by clicking here.
We are also accepting sponsorship for conference attendees, monetary donations, and food donations to make this a successful event for all of SD County.
