Food Well Alliance and Truly Living Well invite you to the fifth annual Soil Festival to continue a tradition of celebrating soil as a key source for building gardens and healthier communities.

Soil Festival is an annual tradition of celebrating soil as a key source for building gardens and healthier communities. This year, organizers are unveiling a brand new Community Compost Learning Lab, the first of its kind in metro-Atlanta.

This free event is for all ages and raises awareness of the benefits of using local compost to improve and maintain high quality soil and to grow healthy food. This year, all attendees are encouraged to bring kitchen scraps to the event to support the production of healthy soil in Atlanta.

Soil Festival 2019 will be held at Truly Living Well’s Collegetown Farm in Atlanta, and includes a host of exciting opportunities for school gardeners, community gardeners, backyard gardeners, urban farmers, educators, beginning gardeners and children!

Never been to a farm? This festival is for you, too!

This year’s Soil Festival will feature educational workshops on gardening and composting; a children’s corner with fun garden-based activities and story time; a variety of urban agriculture vendors to learn tools of the trade from; a petting zoo; and free bags of compost for your garden.

Great tunes and complimentary farm-to-table food and fare will also be provided. Dig in, meet fellow gardeners, and visit all of the exhibitors who will be sharing resources and tools to help you enjoy the successes of gardening.
