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
