If you’ve never been to Truly Living Well’s Collegetown Farm, Soil Festival 2018 is the perfect opportunity to see an urban farm in action. You can take a tour, or even participate in harvesting fresh vegetables that will be used in a cooking demonstration. But, there’s so much more in store! Gardening and composting workshops, exhibitors, music, farm-to-table fare and kids activities - just to name a few of the options available throughout the day.
We’ve mapped out the entire schedule below. Before you check it out, be sure to read these important tips:
Truly Living Well’s Collegetown Farm is located at 324 Lawton St. SW, Atlanta, GA 30310.
Parking will be available on-street and at M. Agnes Jones Elementary School (1040 Fair St SW, Atlanta) adjacent to the farm.
Riding your bike? Bike racks will be located near the registration tables inside of the farm.
Due to limited parking on site, please consider carpooling or using MARTA, Uber, or Lyft. See MARTA directions here.
Truly Living Well is an active urban farm so there will be bees buzzing around, playing the important role of pollinating produce and flowers.
We suggest attendees wear closed toed shoes.
Free gift bags and compost will be available (while supplies last) for those who RSVP online. RSVP here.
