Interested in volunteering at a community garden?
Yeah you are! At Food Well Alliance, we know that the best way to experience urban agriculture in our city is to volunteer at a nearby garden! Give back, get your hands dirty and engage with some beautiful, natural and often overlooked places in Atlanta. Typical tasks include weeding, mulching, turning compost, garden beautification, invasive plant removal and planting/harvesting as needed. We will provide all tools and instruction.
You don’t need to be an expert to join us!
How Does it Work?
You can join a volunteer group year-round on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 9am-12pm.
Garden workdays are appropriate for groups of 8-25 volunteers, ages 8+. That includes you, family, friends, church groups, girl/boy scouts, company employees, etc.
If you or your group are coming from a specific part of town, we will try to find a garden project near you. Please note however that is not always possible, as we match volunteers wherever community gardens that have requested assistance from us across Fulton, Dekalb, Cobb, Clayton and Gwinnett counties.
Sturdy, close-toed shoes, clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and a reusable water bottle (please be mindful of single-use plastic bottles, if possible). Sunscreen and bug spray are also recommended.
Food Well Alliance will provide all tools, gloves, water, snacks and instruction for all workday tasks.
In general, volunteer groups must register at least one month in advance of their intended workday to allow time for garden coordination.
