Dig In: Connecting Atlanta Through Soil

Saturday, August 29
Truly Living Well Wheat Street Garden
Join us for a soil and composting festival to celebrate how community partners are building healthy soil across Metro Atlanta!

Network with other community gardeners, join-in soil activities and enjoy locally-sourced refreshments.
Healthy Soil, Healthy Community is a collaborative initiative with the following partners:

*This program is available to community and educational gardens in Clayton, Cobb, Fulton, DeKalb and Gwinnett counties.  

To qualify, your community garden must be open to the public or surrounding community to enjoy, with gardening plots available for rent, use and/or harvest.  Due to the summer schedule, garden accessibility and differing administration rules, this program is not currently open to school gardens.

Up to fifty-four edible gardens will be selected across the five counties based on geographical distribution, density of gardens in the area, size of garden, participation in workshops, and consent to publish garden address and contact info on Food Well Alliance’s website. Priority will be given to existing gardens that are: growing edible plants, have not received a grant from Food Well Alliance in the past 12 months and demonstrate need for soil and composting tools.  

If selected, your garden will receive a Healthy Soil Tool Kit consisting of: a soil analysis from the University of Georgia’s lab,compost to add to your growing area, a GeoBin compost bin, a ReoTemp compost thermometer, a weatherproof how-to compost sign and a soil and composting reference guide.

If not selected, you can still get our soil and composting reference guide and invitations to future soil and composting events and opportunities!
