Atlanta, GA Community Urban Food Forest Edible Trees

In Progress

The 7.1-acre forest occupies disused farmland in the Browns Mill neighborhood. Local volunteers planted and maintain more than 2,200 trees with fruits, nuts, and vegetables free for public use.

City officials want to replicate this model to provide easy access to healthy food for 85% of Atlanta residents by 2022.
