AgLanta "Grows-A-Lot" is a City of Atlanta program that invites entrepreneurs, non-profits, and residents to apply for a 5-year renewable license to adopt a vacant, city-owned property to start a new urban garden or urban farm in AgLanta. Together, we are producing healthy food and rich compost on rooftops to energy right-of-ways. Applicants can search available properties ; review applicant requirements; and start the five-step application process by clicking the urban garden or urban farm button below - or downloading this AgLanta Grows-A-Lot Adoption Process form.
- Please review the property's location, permitted urban agriculture uses, applicant requirements, costs, and deadlines.
- If these properties are not a good fit for your urban agriculture project, we encourage you to join an existing urban garden or farm in Aglanta, or check back in for new properties in the future.
- If you identify a property that could be a good fit for your urban garden or urban farm take the first step: submit the online "AgLanta Grows-A-Lot Site Inquiry" form below to ask about a site, assistance with the process, or sign up for an open house.
- Everyone interested in growing healthy food in Atlanta is welcome at 2018 AgLanta Academys. (Email ebeak@atlantaGA.gov to sign up.)
