Dear Community Garden Organizations,

“Just how many community gardens are there?” This question is increasingly
being asked by participants, policy makers, journalists, and the general
public. Currently, we don’t have a good answer, since the last survey of
community gardening was done over a decade ago. A lot has changed and we
need better information, but to get it need your help!

The American Community Garden Association and Rutgers University invite your
organization take part in a survey about the current status of community
gardening. The survey is intended to collect information about the
comprehensive efforts underway in the U.S. and Canada and includes questions
about the number and type of community gardens in your community, changes
over the past 5 years, and the role and challenges your organization faces
in its work to promote community gardens. Summary of the results will be
made available to the public on the ACGA website, at the 2012 ACGA
Conference in San Francisco, and other publications.

T*he questionnaire should take 25-45 minutes to fill out; it will go faster
if you have access to data on the number of community gardens associated
with your organization. You can choose to take this survey anonymously, or
you can enter your contact information to be entered into a raffle after you
complete and submit the survey.*

Raffle prizes are:
*Two free registrations for the ACGA 2012 Conference in San Francisco ($350
value each)
*One ACGA organizational membership ($120 value)
*Two ACGA prize packs (Shirts and Books)

Deadline for submission of the survey to be included in the raffle is
November 1, 2011. Winners will be notified on December 1, 2011.
