Athens Land Trust conserves, empowers, & sustains communities through responsible and visionary land use.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday serves as “a day on, not a day off.” Athens Land Trust will honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day by hosting two volunteer sites at Five Acre Woods for Invasive Plant Management and Mae Willie Community for a Garden Workday.
We are excited to host this series of workshops designed to help budding entrepreneurs develop their business and for existing business owners to grow their businesses. Our goal is to have registrants attend every workshop to take full advantage of this amazing FREE offering, as well as to develop a written business plan for their business.

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.”
