Land for Conservation and Community

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.

Please join us on Saturday, December 10th at the West Broad Farmers Market and Garden (in tandem with the WBFM Holiday Market) for refreshments and camaraderie as we reflect on our milestones this year!

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 Wednesdays at 5 PM, and you can pick up your order on Fridays from 12-2 PM in our drive-through (or bike -through and walk-through!) market at our office on North Pope Street.

Help us celebrate the winter holidays and round off our 2022 market season at the annual Holiday Market and Craft Fair! We invite you to join us on December 10th from 11 AM to 2 PM at the West Broad Farmers Market and Garden for music, kids’ holiday crafts, local artisans, craft makers, culinary enthusiasts, and local farmers and growers. This is the perfect opportunity to shop for your loved ones this holiday season.
