Thank you to everyone who helped to make AgLanta Eats a smashing success! Nearly 700 attendees, including local farmers, chefs, public servants, and community members, came together at the Atlanta Botanical Garden on July 16, 2018 to celebrate the growth of Atlanta’s urban agriculture system. Thanks to our sponsors and participants, we raised $45,000 to support our Urban Agriculture Program, led by farmer Maurice Small, to help expand local food systems to communities lacking access through the AgLanta Grows-A-Lot program, in partnership with the Atlanta Mayor's Office of Resilience.
Aglanta Grows-a-Lot is a new program of Groundwork Atlanta in partnership with the City of Atlanta Mayor's Office of Resilience and the Fulton County Soil and Water Conservation District, which is enabling the transformation of vacant city properties and Georgia Power utility corridors into urban farms and gardens. Soil testing has been completed on 8 sites that are moving forward in our pilot program. View the recommendations based on these results here and below. Learn more about Aglanta Grows-a-Lot!
