Soil Festival 2019

  • Truly Living Well (map)

Food Well Alliance invites you to the 5th Annual Soil Festival -- and it’s bigger and better than ever before! Soil Festival is an annual tradition of celebrating soil as a key source for building gardens and healthier communities. This year, we’re unveiling a brand new Community Compost Learning Lab, the first of its kind in metro Atlanta.

This free event is for all ages and raises awareness of the benefits of using local compost to improve and maintain high quality soil and to grow healthy food. This year, we encourage all attendees to bring kitchen scraps to the event to support the production of healthy soil in Atlanta.

Soil Festival 2019 will be held at Truly Living Well’s Collegetown Farm in Southwest Atlanta, and includes a host of exciting opportunities for school gardeners, community gardeners, backyard gardeners, urban farmers, educators, beginning gardeners and children! Never been to a farm? This festival is for you, too!

Soil Festival 2019 will feature:

  • Educational workshops on gardening, composting and beekeeping

  • Children’s corner with fun garden-based activities and story time

  • Variety of urban agriculture vendors to learn tools of the trade from

  • Petting zoo for the kids!

  • Free compost for your garden

  • Complimentary farm-to-table food and fare

Come out with your fellow garden members, family, friends and neighbors to learn how each of us can help to preserve soil and continue growing healthier communities at Soil Festival.

We look forward to seeing you there!
