CB ATL: FeedATL Summer Series Part VI
FeedATL is a weekly program taking place all Summer long, made possible by our partnership with the Food Well Alliance. We will be working with a hand-picked cohort of urban farmers who work hard everyday to bolster Atlanta’s local food ecosystem.
For Part 6, we join a new partner near Stone Mountain called Grow With The Flow. Come learn about this innovative organization turning private yards into crop-filled mini farms. You’ll meet like-minded folks who also want to be part of strengthening local food systems, plus you’ll have a great time working hard in the dirt!
For the service part…
As always, we’ll start the day with a little tour and hear the story directly from the farmers who run Grow With The Flow. We’ll get to work on a variety of tasks they need to help keep these gardens thriving in the Summer heat. No experience necessary, just come ready for a good time!
For the social part…
When we finish working, we will stick around on the property for some cold drinks and lunch, along with some King of Pops. All of this is our gift to you as a thank you for your morning of service to the community!
Ready to sign up?
With space being limited, we do ask that you register if you plan to attend. It’s free to participate, and you are welcome to make a donation at checkout if you’re able. These funds help us cover extra programming expenses and keep our events top-notch for everyone.
Your ticket will include all the supplies to make this an extra enjoyable event, including drinks, popsicles and lunch on site . That’s the Service Made Social way!
About the FeedATL Program
Each week, we will be onsite at one of the selected farms on a rotating basis, so we can serve each farmer in a variety of ways throughout the season. You do not need to commit to any more than a single workday, but we hope you do return if you have a good time! You’ll see progress week-to-week, and you’ll get to know some pretty inspiring local farmers!
Mission-Aligned Volunteering That Promises Smiles
Our mission is to cultivate local community connections through social volunteering, and that’s exactly what you can expect when you attend. Every project will feature components of learning, of service, and of having fun while meeting new people.
Many urban farms around Atlanta struggle to keep up with the growing demand for healthy, locally grown foods. This includes a lack of manpower to operate and get work done on the farm. Volunteers can help fill this gap and add capacity to a farm, but managing volunteers is also a time-consuming task. Community Bucket partners with these farmers to deliver volunteers like you and create a memorable experience that will keep you wanting more.
