WHAT’S HAPPENING

What does mass transit have to do with urban agriculture? More than you might think.

Jobs, health and food access are just some of the areas where the two issues overlap. That’s why members of the TransFormation Alliance, along with officials from the Mayor’s Office of Resilience and a diverse group of community stakeholders, recently boarded a bus to visit some of Atlanta’s urban farmers to see the important work they do up close and in person.

These farms grow more than crops. They also grow communities. That’s why finding ways to help them thrive and to replicate that success is so important.
