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.
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.
Please note: The Athens Land Trust office is closed and all public events are cancelled until further notice. All in-person classes, gatherings, and other events have been cancelled, postponed, or moved online due to the pandemic. Check the Upcoming Events tab for more information!
