Athens Land Trust conserves, empowers, & sustains communities through responsible and visionary land use.
We are happy to announce that the West Broad Garden has found a new home on the corner of Waddell St. and Rocksprings st., just behind the Athens Housing Authority. The West Broad Garden is a one-way Athens Land Trust that achieves its mission to increase access to fresh, healthy, affordable food, promote sustainable agriculture, and support economic entrepreneurial opportunities for underserved youth and adults.
To celebrate and support the new West Broad Garden, the Athens Land Trust has started a raised bed sponsorship program. By sponsoring one of the raised beds that will be used in the garden, you are contributing to the continued legacy of the garden and championing the efforts of the Athens Land Trust to reduce poverty and conserve land for future generations.
