This is Your Chance to Dig In
Last summer, we sent out a survey to ask you, Metro Atlanta’s community and educational gardens, what tools and resources you need to be more successful.
The most common requests were for resources and technical assistance to build healthy soil and to compost. Better soil in your garden improves plant health and growth, which can decrease pests and diseases.
In response, we are announcing the Healthy Soil, Healthy Community Initiative, a collaborative effort to support community gardening through educational tools, technical assistance, online resources, and community events.
Free compost workshops are available from June through October, and are designed to help you improve your garden's soil and increase your composting skills.
In addition to the workshops, your garden may be qualified to receive a Healthy Soil Tool Kit consisting of: quality compost, a compost bin, a composting thermometer, a soil test, a weatherproof instructional sign, and a healthy soil resource guide - all at no cost to you and sponsored by Food Well Alliance.
Register by July 28th at www.foodwellalliance.org/healthysoilhealthycommunity.
Food Well Alliance and our community partners recognize how important gardens are for the health and vitality of our communities. We recognize your great work and we want to support you!
