AgLanta Eats

  • Atlanta Botanical Gardens (map)

Groundwork Atlanta is thrilled to present AgLanta Eats, the hyper local food festival formerly known as Taste of AgLanta, now in its third year with a new name, a fresh look, and an incredible venue! AgLanta Eats features a variety of tastings prepared by top, local chefs utilizing the freshest ingredients from farms in metro Atlanta. It’s all going down at the beautiful Atlanta Botanical Gardens, which will be open exclusively to attendees of AgLanta Eats. Add in your pick of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, a silent auction, and live music, and you've got a recipe for an epic evening on Monday, July 16!

Chef Lineup includes: Chef Zu of Kings Apron, Carolynn Ladd of A Date With Figs, Maricela Vega of Chicomecóatl, Philip Meeker of Bright Seed, Seth Freedman of PeachDish, Kevin D. Ouzts of The Cockentrice and Spotted Trotter Charcuterie, and Terry Koval of Wrecking Bar Brewpub. We'll have more chefs and farm partners to announce soon! 

Proceeds from the evening benefit the AgLanta "Grows-A-Lot" program, in association with Groundwork Atlanta, which supports the conversion of vacant and underutilized parcels owned by the City of Atlanta and Georgia Power into productive urban farms and gardens. This year, the AgLanta "Grows-A-Lot" team has launched four (4) pilot sites, with five (5) more launching later this year. Join us in celebrating the rich culture and agricultural traditions of our city at AgLanta Eats, and help us fund the continued growth of Atlanta's urban food system!
