You are invited to taste the future of Atlanta's urban food system, while celebrating the rich culture and agricultural traditions of our city at the second annual Taste of Aglanta!
Thanks to a strong coalition of Atlanta food system leaders and advocates, the City of Atlanta’s Urban Agriculture Ordinance was passed in 2014. This ordinance helped lay the groundwork for Atlanta to become a national leader in urban agriculture. In 2015 Mayor Kasim Reed appointed the first Urban Agriculture Director in the country, and announced an ambitious goal: to ensure that healthy food is within a .5 mile of 75% of Atlanta residents by 2020. The Urban Agriculture Director works with community partners to continue to evolve city policies and help leverage the impact urban agriculture can have in creating a more resilient city.
