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.
