Urban Food Forest at Browns Mill Community Garden - Aglanta

The Browns Mill Community Garden Team is a member of the AgLanta Grows-A-Lot program. We are part of the Urban Food Forest at Browns Mill, Atlanta's first Community Urban Food Forest.  The Urban Food Forest at Browns Mill is also a new model for a City of Atlanta park. The Community Garden is managed by the garden members.  We plant a variety of produce which is distributed among garden members first.  As we are located in an area identified as a food desert, we are proud to say that all excess produce is distributed among other members of the community.  Thank you for volunteering to work with our team to cultivate a more resilient, equitable and accessible food system for ONE Atlanta.The Browns Mill Community Garden Team is a member of the AgLanta Grows-A-Lot program.
