The Independence Community Garden Association (ICGA) provides a forum for all gardeners in Independence to network with each other and share ideas, resources, and expertise.
The vision of ICGA is a community coming together for better health and better living through gardening.
The mission of ICGA is to encourage and nurture the development of community gardens and gardeners to grow and increase consumption of fruits and vegetables. The ICGA supports community gardens that foster self-sufficiency, recreation, education, sustainability and social harmony.
