ACGA Forum Etiquette


This forum is for sharing ideas and strategies about community building, policy, management, development, fundraising, education, membership, land-use and gardening topics related to community gardening, urban agriculture, and ACGA.

It is a forum for sharing solutions that work. Self-promotion and advertising messages are discouraged. Classes and activities of interest to urban gardeners like plant sales, etc. are ok.
