City of Lawrenceville: Community Food Forum

Let’s Reimagine How Our City Grows!

In a time of rapid redevelopment in metro Atlanta, the pressure on urban farms and community gardens has increased dramatically. In partnership with Atlanta Regional Commission, Food Well Alliance will embark on a pilot project that brings together local governments and communities across the five-county metro Atlanta region to create a city-wide plan that incorporates agriculture into the next phase of their development.

Come share your ideas and hear from metro Atlanta farmers and local food experts about the value that community gardens and farms can bring to your city as it develops.
