Who: The Urban Food Forest at Browns Mill team is a member of the AgLanta Grows-A-Lot program. This site will become Atlanta's first Community Urban Food Forest, as well as a new model for a City of Atlanta park. The food forest will produce a wide variety of fresh, flavorful, and healthy nuts, fruits, vegetables, herbs, and mushrooms, which will become available for public consumption. Located in an area identified as a food desert, the site was a working farm as recently as 2000. Thank you for working with this team to cultivate a more resilient, equitable and accessible food system for ONE Atlanta.
What: Volunteers will help with building the soil, weeding, planting, watering, harvesting and site beautification projects. Tools will be provided.
Safety: Please bring a water bottle, wear a hat, and closed toe shoes.
