Land for Conservation and Community

Athens Land Trust conserves, empowers, & sustains communities through responsible and visionary land use.

The West Broad Farmers Market is geared towards building a neighborhood-based economy by providing a retail space for under-served farmers and food-based small business owners. On any given Saturday morning, you can find fresh produce, baked goods, local artisans, fresh cut flowers, live music, wifi, cooking demos, sustainable gardening workshops, yoga in the garden, and more!

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.

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.”
