CB ATL: FeedATL Summer Series Part XI
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 11, we will return to our friends at Metro Atlanta Urban Farm in College Park for a Saturday morning filled with hands-on fun. You’ll learn about the important work this organization is doing to supply healthy and fresh food to local residents, you’ll get your hands dirty in the gardens, and you’ll get to meet like-minded folks in a welcoming, laid-back atmosphere.
For the service part…
For the first year ever, MAUF’s lead farmer is creating a full-blown Crop Maze to help build out opportunities for local youth education and engagement throughout the farming season. Our group will continue helping with various tasks to construct this maze, along with other crop maintenance that’s needed.
For the social part…
When we finish working, we’ll gather at the picnic pavilion at the farm to make culinary influencer Sonny Hurrell’s famous recipe for fresh-picked rosemary salt for everyone to take home! “If you know, you know!” We will also have some cold beverages and light snacks for everyone to enjoy while we gather.
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.
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
