ACGA 2022 Conference, New Orleans, LA,  Request For EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
The mission of the American Community Gardening Association (ACGA) is to build community by increasing and enhancing community gardening and greening across the United States and Canada.

Each year, ACGA organizes an Annual Conference hosted by a different city.  The 2022 ACGA Annual Conference will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana from October 6th to 9th. Workshops will be held Friday morning and afternoon and Sunday morning. Saturday will be garden tours and networking events.  Each workshop will be 50 minutes long including Q&A.  We welcome workshops in Spanish as well as English.  The theme of this year’s conference is "Rooted in Green Community."

Typically, workshops focus on community engagement, leadership development, innovative community garden programs, presentation of community garden and urban agriculture related research, volunteer management, site management, youth garden programs, community garden programs operated by non-profits, municipalities, universities and cooperative extension programs, horticultural therapy, conservation of soil and water, social justice and food access.  Community Gardens are diverse and inclusive, we value diversity of age, race, gender, orientation, perspective and approach.

Workshop presenters receive a $100 discount for conference registration, which can be split with a co-presenter.  Educational poster presentations for the lobby are awarded a complimentary conference t-shirt.
