Athens Land Trust conserves, empowers, & sustains communities through responsible and visionary land use.
For beginning entrepreneurs, we offer a Vendor Development Program, an educational support program provided for those who are just getting started in their business.
This FREE Course will cover what you need to know to prepare a new or updated business plan and connect you with the resources necessary to build a solid foundation for growth.
The course will take place at the Athens-Clarke County Library every Monday, starting March 18. The course will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
A Farm Share is a great way to incorporate fresh local produce into your diet, and to support small farmers in your community. You pay the full cost of your Farm Share at the beginning of a season, and then you pick up your weekly box of food at either the West Broad Farmers Market (Saturdays) or Williams Farm (Fridays).
Our Farm Share is a relationship between our farmer network and our customers, or Farm Share “members.” By purchasing a Farm Share membership, you will be supporting local businesses.
Our annual May Day Celebration is right around the corner! This fun community event marks the opening day of the 2019 season at the West Broad Farmers Market. Join us for kids activities, fresh produce and artisan goods from local vendors, special guest speakers, live music and performances, cooking demonstrations, and the maypole dedication! It’s sure to be a fun day all around, so don’t miss out!
Athens Land Trust is proud to mark 25 years of building stronger, healthier, more equitable and sustainable communities, and grateful for the relationships we have built with neighborhood residents, families, local businesses, and institutions that make this long-term work possible. This shared commitment to our community has inspired the Community Carnival at West Broad, and we invite you to join us in celebration on June 1st, 2019.
There will be game booths, food trucks and vendors, carnival rides, face painting, and more! Stay tuned for details on this wonderful community celebration.
With land that is community-owned and driven by community interests, our goal is to create healthy communities and forge partnerships to effect positive change across Athens, Georgia.
What is a Land Trust?
Athens Land Trust is a Community Land Trust (CLT). “CLTs are nonprofit organizations—governed by a board of CLT residents, community residents and public representatives—that provide lasting community assets and permanently affordable housing opportunities for families and communities.
CLTs develop rural and urban agriculture projects, commercial spaces to serve local communities, affordable rental and cooperative housing projects, and conserve land or urban green spaces.
However, the heart of their work is the creation homes that remain permanently affordable, providing successful homeownership opportunities for generations of lower income families.”
