There are 52 cities in the 5-county metro Atlanta region.
Let’s start planning for urban agriculture one city at a time…
Metro Atlanta is one of the fastest growing regions in our country.
From Norcross to Clarkston to South Fulton, cities are rapidly re-developing. As our metro Atlanta cities become more dense and developed, the pressure on urban farms and gardens increases. In partnership with Atlanta Regional Commission, Food Well Alliance will embark on a pilot project that brings together local governments and communities across the five-county metro Atlanta region to create a city-wide plan that incorporates urban agriculture into the next phase of their development.
In 2019, we will select one pilot city to develop a City Urban Agriculture Plan.
Urban gardens and farms bring value to cities.
Since 2015, Food Well Alliance has invested nearly $3 million into 150 local food organizations that are building healthy, equitable communities across the 5-county region. Beyond local food production, gardens and farms are critical spaces for community health, vitality and resilience.
