Agriculture accounts for more than $74 billion annually to Georgia’s economy. Though the state has long had advocacy groups and associations supporting the interests of rural farmers, a new appointment in the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Sustainability acknowledges the importance of urban agriculture in resilience and sustainability.
April’s SART will focus on this appointment and other recent developments in the local sustainable food movement. New organizations and positions have emerged within Atlanta over the past year that are advancing the conversation around local food production, food system sustainability and improving the City's resilience through food production.
Mario Cambardella, Urban Agriculture Director, City of Atlanta
Bobbi de Winter, Executive Director, Food Well Alliance
Tenisio Seanima, Farmer Services Coordinator, Georgia Organics
