Our Work

Learn more about the work we do below. Our work spans the use of land as a resource for many purposes, from wealth generation and environmental protection to local food systems and entrepreneurship.

Affordable Housing

Through the community land trust model, we improve the supply of permanently affordable housing. We believe in the importance of high quality, environmentally friendly housing that meets the community’s needs.

Land Conservation

We work with landowners to protect ecologically rich terrain, working farmland, and scenic areas in Georgia. Protecting natural areas sustains clean air and water, wildlife habitat, biodiversity, water supply and productive soils.

Community Agriculture

We collaborate in developing a sustainable local food system in some of Athens’ most food insecure areas, strengthening the local economy and promoting unity and wellness at the neighborhood level.

Credit & Financial Growth

We provide various education resources and partnerships, helping community members build assets to increase economic opportunity across Athens-Clarke County.

Youth Development

We provide youth job training and education programs, integrating hands-on learning with community involvement, developing young leaders in the local community.

Neighborhood Revitalization

We support and facilitate healthy, functioning neighborhoods, building the foundation for empowered, vibrant communities. We believe revitalization done well creates positive impact in the communities we serve.
