Go Grow Atlanta

Go Grow Atlanta is a campaign centered around updating the current policy surrounding zoning code to allow for urban agriculture projects such as community gardens and farms to thrive. Currently, there are may barriers in the way but a group of urban farmers, community gardeners, health professionals and community development organizations have worked to develop the Go Grow Atlanta legislative proposal, focused on amending Atlanta’s zoning law to support and promote urban agriculture.

On October 7, 2013,

The Urban Agriculture Zoning Ordinance was introduced by Atlanta City Councilmember Aaron Watson. And beginning in December 2013, the ordinance will be reviewed by Atlanta’s Neighborhood Planning Units, which is an opportunity for the community to provide input before City Council votes on the ordinance
