But [this week] we’re going to announce a partnership for gardening and food with the city of Decatur, Decatur city schools, Georgia Organics and Oakhurst. What we’re going to do is find multiple locations to [develop] gardens and figure out who does the labor, how it’s funded and how the [produce] is distributed to the community.
The last time I asked the city about the “urban farms” initiative, they said it was still in the planning stages. But this weekend is the Georgia Organics Conference at Agnes Scott, so this would be a good time to get it all out there. Hopefully we’ll hear the full details soon!
Also, it looks like there’s still a chance to meet Michael Pollan even if you can’t attend the conference or the farm to table dinner. Carl sent me a link a few days back from Slow Food Atlanta, which advertised “Cocktails in the Garden” with Pollan at the Oakhurst Community Garden on Friday, March 20th from 6:30-7p. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased here.
