Aglanta Forum


There are few things that cut to the core of individual health and environmental sustainability than local food grown using natural and organic methods.

As such, the Atlanta urban agriculture community is kicking off the Aglanta Forum on July 21-22, 2017, hosted at the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History (AARL) in partnership with Historic Westside Gardens and the American Community Garden Association.

Following an opening panel discussion, the Aglanta Forum will feature two distinct educational tracks -- Community Food Gardening  and Home Food Gardening. These in-depth sessions, led by Historic Westside Gardens and the American Community Garden Association will cover issues across the spectrum of community building, including leadership development, grassroots fundraising, and the collaborative economic impact of food gardening networks on Friday and Saturday. 

Benefiting from our collaboration with the AARL, we will be exposed to the rich heritage and roots of the culinary traditions and the gardening art the African American history contributes to our nation.

Through holding a variety of workshops, panels and networking opportunities, the Aglanta Forum creates an intimate and valuable environment to engage colleagues and peers in during solutions for urban farming. We look forward to seeing you at the Library. See below for a detailed look at plenaries and workshops.
