Athens Land Trust preserves, protects, and strengthens the fabric of the community through education and the stewardship of land for purposes of affordable housing, conservation, agriculture, and economic development.
Athens Land Trust is excited to host this course designed to help budding entrepreneurs develop their business and for existing business owners to grow their business. Thanks to funding through the ACC Community Development Block Grant, there is no cost to participate. Our goal is to have registrants attend every course date to take full advantage of this amazing FREE offering, as well as to develop a written business plan for their business. Workshops will be part-lecture and part in-class work to give attendees time to develop strong business plans and strategies. Meetings will also feature local guest speakers.
Shop fresh produce, baked goods, prepared foods, arts and crafts, fresh cut flowers, meat and dairy products, and more through the West Broad Farmers Market online at wbfm.locallygrown.net or call us to place an order over the phone at 706-765-4020! We accept orders from Sundays at 5 PM through Thursdays at 1PM, and you can pick up your order on Saturdays from 11:30 to 1:30 in our drive-through (or bike -through and walk-through!) market.
In addition to the weekly drive-thru market, the West Broad Farmers Market is set to host in-person shopping opp ortunities once a month! Every year on the first Saturday in May, the WBFM hosts their May Day Celebration. May Day marks the changing of the seasons, and we invite you to celebrate with us through music, festivities, and of course, the maypole dedication in the garden! We will have plenty of talented farmers, gardeners, artists, and other local vendors, so this is a great opportunity to shop locally for your Mother's Day gifts!

In efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19, all visitors to the office are required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. We thank you in advance for your cooperation!
