COMMUNITY GARDEN LEADERSHIP ACADEMY
In partnership with Cooperative Extension A&T, The Community Garden Leadership Academy (CGLA) is an introduction to techniques and strategies for working effectively with diverse stakeholders in community gardens and to continue to develop as community garden leaders and organizers. This training will provide Cooperative Extension agents and garden leaders with the resources they need to support their gardens development and connect to the statewide community garden network.
