Did you know that there is a CVC Urban Farm right here in Southwest Atlanta?
Formed as part of NPU-T’s Community Food Project, the Atwood Community Gardens (http://www.nextstepsyep.org) has been located in the Beecher-Donnelly (http://www.beecherdonnelly.com/) neighborhood since 2008. With the support of many southwest Atlanta residents and friends, the urban farm has initiated an agricultural training program that uses gardening to introduce students to careers in STEM.
Learn more about Beecher-Donnelly and other southwest Atlanta neighborhoods that will compete in the Westview Summer Solstice grill off competition! Come out on June 25th and join us for a day of music, food, vendors, and more. http://www.westviewatlanta.com/
This event is not possible without neighborhood donations and support. We need your help! See below how to help make this event a success.
