Groundwork Atlanta works collaboratively and strategically to develop and deliver projects in five key program areas:
We work to plan and implement improvement of underutilized and underserved areas, with a focus on brownfields reclamation, sustainability, community-oriented development, and expansion and enhancement of public space.
We engage with a diversity of community members, especially young people, in positively impacting their surroundings, while working collaboratively with non-profit, business, and government organization representatives.
We strive to protect and improve the health and quality of urban waters, including Proctor Creek and the Chattahoochee River, through enhanced access, amenities, and application of best management practices.
We work to increase the scale and accessibility of Atlanta's local food systems through expansion of more sustainable food production, processing, distribution, consumption, and reclamation facilities.
We are helping to establish safer and more complete networks for travel of all types, including walking, cycling, and public transit.
