  • Metro Atlanta Urban Farm (map)

Metro Atlanta Urban Farm (MAUF) sits on a beautiful five-acre tract of land in the heart of College Park, Georgia, in Metropolitan Atlanta. A certified, naturally grown farm, MAUF serves as an educational nucleus, containing community gardens, a food distribution center and a meeting place for volunteers and community residents who are captivated by the lure of fresh, healthy produce. A long-serving member of ACGA, Metro Atlanta Urban Farm presents a magical, stress-free Saturday evening event. Taste of the South will feature the very best iconic, mouth-watering southern cuisine. Guests will join in with nature, dancing and dining under the stars, while they enjoy a special evening of fun, live jazz and entertainment.
