Our Key Focus
Community garden management is an immensely satisfying and enriching experience that requires the support and development of a strong network. That is why we are extremely pleased to have launched our Friends Of Atwood Community Garden Club. Our collective works with community partners like Hands On Atlanta, United Way Gifts In Kind of Metropolitan Atlanta, Break Away and The Atlanta Community Food Bank have allowed us to draw upon the experiences of many successful gardening enthusiasts and implement many community-based natural resource management practices.
We are all so very proud of our accomplishments in providing community service opportunities for friends, families and community partners from all over the nation: churches, schools, youth groups, juvenile detention centers, universities, businesses, corporations, non-profit organizations, government groups and individuals. We cannot forget, however, that the Atwood Community Gardens & Urban Farm Park Model’s primary focus is to provide S.T.E.M. educational opportunities for at-risk, low income students that attend schools located within a 5-10 mile radius of our Atwood Model sites. That is why we have created The Friends of Atwood Community Garden Club to assist with the planning, design and implementation of our programs and services listed below.
