Atlanta Turns 7-Acre Vacant Lot into Largest Free Food Forest in the Country

Posted on February 1, 2020

Atlanta just turned a former “food desert” into a “food forest” that will provide citizens with free, organic fruits, nuts, veggies, mushrooms and herbs

The city bought the land for around $150,000 the Conservation Fund, who’d bought it up to help keep it affordable and will be helping maintain the park in the future.
The plan is to replicate the food forest in several locations throughout Atlanta, where a third of the land is considered a “food desert” by the USDA and a quarter of the citizens live more than a half mile from fresh fruits and vegetables […]
