American Community Garden Association - Franklin Park: If 50 People Donate $10, Then American Community Gardening Association Can Host a Trainer at a Gardening Session

When planted in neighborhoods that otherwise have no resources for healthy food options, community gardens can increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables. The American Community Garden Association (ACGA) saturates neighborhoods with the education and resources needed to develop sustainable community gardens in local conditions.

Growing Communities, a two-day workshop, gives individuals a clear roadmap for developing community gardens along with the essential leadership skills to see it through. Training sessions teach neighbors how to tend their garden according to local conditions and produce items tailored to the community’s needs. While training, residents, community developers, and food-security organizations learn about the basics of soil and seeds while simultaneously developing meeting facilitation, outreach, and coalition-building skills.

Join G-Team and donate $10 to help ACGA host training sessions on how to improve local resources with community gardens. If G-Team members raise $500, the American Community Gardening Association can host a trainer for a Growing Communities training session in Columbus. Each additional $10 raised will go toward funding another trainer.

Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
