Team Up to Green Up Fall Volunteer Day
Planting a Food Forest at Browns Mill Atlanta Food Forest
Atlanta’s first Food Forest will become a designed and managed public park that grows a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and mushrooms and makes them available for public consumption. Located in an area identified as a food desert, the site was a working farm as recently as 2000. Neighbors in the Browns Mill area still talk about the land’s former owners, Ruby and Willie Morgan, who left excess produce from their farm on fence posts for neighbors to claim and enjoy.”
