Gardening with Friends of English Avenue
Gardening @ The English Avenue urban Farm
Get your hands dirty in the Friends of English Avenue Urban Farm! Our garden is located just west of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. We have been growing fresh produce in English Avenue for over ten years and are proud to supply produce to 25 families living in a federally recognized food desert. Come prepared to help us plant, dig, weed, and welcome in the spring, all while supporting a good cause.
Tasks may include:
- Filling produce beds with soil, planting seedlings, watering, and weeding
- Mulching designated areas with wood chips
- Trimming and cutting overgrowth
- Assembling and painting signage for plants
Expectations during service:

Court ordered volunteers are permitted to serve (Please note: Individuals who have been convicted of or charged with any crime involving or relating to children or violence are NOT permitted to register).
