Letter of Support Campaign:
At ACGA we recognize the importance of making community gardens permanent. The Board of Directors of the American Community Gardening Association is pleased to announce a campaign to directly help ACGA members by writing letters of support for you!
There are two kinds of Letters of support Reactive and Proactive. Reactive Letters of Support are sent to a person or organization (such as a landlord, city official, or neighbor) who has expressed negative sentiment towards your garden and this sentiment might threaten the viability of your community garden. Consider this tool if you are fighting for your community garden's survival.
Proactive Letters of Support are sent to a person or organization (again, such as a landlord, city official, or neighbor) who deserves your thanks. They may have just signed a new lease with you, given you a grant, or voted to support your garden, for example.
You can view examples of both types of letters here:
If you would like a letter of support for your garden, you can e-mail our office, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to provide the following:
- Your name
- Your community garden's name
- Details of the situation
- The exact name and address of the person to whom you want us to send the letter.
In the subject line of your email please write: Letter of Support Needed.
We're here to help you protect your garden.
