From Atlanta’s historic westside neighborhoods to Austell, and from Lilburn to Cabbagetown, community gardens are helping to shape the landscape of metro Atlanta. They are an essential source of fresh, local produce in areas where access to these foods is scarce, but their benefits reach far beyond the food they grow. They beautify neighborhoods and support local ecology, providing safe spaces and meeting places for everyone from children to seniors. They serve as hands-on teaching centers where people can connect to each other and to the earth where their food comes from.

Since 2015, we have awarded 96 Community Garden Grants to help gardeners complete infrastructure projects, purchase resources and practice new innovations. Every year, we’re more inspired by the creative ways community gardeners use the funds. We can’t wait to see the new compost systems, beekeeping equipment, raised beds for wheelchair access, and more! We celebrate you for increasing access to healthier local food and building communities that thrive.


2019 Recipients

In 2019, Food Well Alliance expanded our annual Community Garden Grant awards to include compost delivery as well as a three-bin compost system, in addition to funding to improve community gardens. Applicants were invited to apply for one, two or all three grants! You can learn more here.
