City of Alpharetta: Community Food Forum

  • 2 Park Plaza Alpharetta, Ga (map)

Let’s Reimagine How Alpharetta Grows!

In a time of rapid redevelopment in metro Atlanta, the pressure on urban farms and community gardens has increased dramatically. 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 agriculture into the next phase of their development.

Come share your ideas and hear from metro Atlanta urban farmers and local food experts about the value that community gardens and farms can bring to the City of Alpharetta as it grows and develops.

Here's what to expect!

  • Networking + locally-sourced refreshments
