*****Author’s Note: The following post was published on August 26, 2018 and has not been updated since its initial publication. As this post was written as part of a bigger, older project that has already ended, I do not intend on updating this post with new information about the organizations featured in it. This means some or all of the information in this or other posts in this series may be outdated by the time you read this post.
If you need the latest information on these organizations, it is your responsibility to conduct that research on your own. These posts can be used as a jumping off point for that research, but it is still your responsibility to look up these organizations on your own to verify whether or not their services still exist or will actually work for your needs.
***This blog post is part of a weekly series titled #SignalBoostSunday. This series will highlight organizations and social causes that are of importance and provide assistance to the Greater Atlanta area. ***
For this week’s #SignalBoostSunday, we’re focusing on two organizations that support and provide access to fresh, local and healthy foods to the Atlanta area by either helping the city develop its own urban agriculture or by simply providing its residents access to food grown by local farmers.
The first organization is a year-round farmers market and the other is a local nonprofit that works to develop Atlanta’s urban agriculture by educating the community about gardening and urban farming and providing farmers markets.
