We love the city of Atlanta and want to see its neighborhoods thrive through dignifying work opportunities and increased access to locally grown, farm fresh food. Our goals are:To close the gap between local food producers and Georgia consumers
    To spread the art and career of farming to distressed neighborhoods in the city
    To support communities through increased economic vitality
    To meet Atlanta’s demand for farm-fresh, organic produce from within the city.”
  • Heartwood Community, The (Blue Ridge, GA): “Heartwood is an intentional community in Blue Ridge, GA, interested in providing most, if not all of our food, water, power, needs, and services and educating others about how to do the same.”
  • Hostel in the Forest, The (Brunswick, GA): “The world would be a much healthier and better place if all its inhabitants advocated sustainability instead of unlimited growth. Rather than trying to control nature and use it as a resource for development, we should revere it, respect it, and work with it. The Hostel in the Forest is taking steps to manifest this vision. We see that nature’s creatures, including humans, animals, birds and insects share the same land in a unique manner. Inspired by the creativity found in the natural environment, we have transformed our ideas into actions by having an organic vegetable garden used in our dinners each night, recycling our wastes, having a cutting-edge gray-water system, watering plants with a solar powered irrigation system, and using a worm box that composts our table scraps into fertilizer for the garden. Hostel members sleep in tree houses, hike the T-trails through the 133 acre forest, swim and paddle canoes in the lake, take part in the healing process of walking our labyrinth, participate in the sweat lodges held on the nights of the full moon, eat a healthy vegetarian or vegan meal each night, and attend the many educational retreats and lectures designed to teach us how to move toward a wholesome and more sustainable future.”
