CB ATL: FeedATL Summer Series Part XII
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 12, we will head back to Gilliam’s Community Garden in Oakland City for an evening of good farming 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…
Farmer Charlie will put us to work with everything from harvesting crops to weeding and more. You’ll be part of making a difference in helping bring fresh food to this historic neighborhood. No skills required, but come ready to sweat!
For the social part…
When we finish working, we will take a virtual craft beer crawl at the farm by sampling some craft beer flights made by some of Atlanta’s best small breweries. Light snacks will also be provided.

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
