RSVP for Community Food Forum in Pine Lake

From Norcross to Clarkston to South Fulton, cities are rapidly re-developing. As our metro Atlanta cities become more dense and developed, the pressure on urban farms and gardens increases. In partnership with Atlanta Regional Commission, Food Well Alliance will embark on a pilot project that brings together local governments and communities across the five-county metro Atlanta region to create a city-wide plan that incorporates urban agriculture into the next phase of their development.

In 2019, Food Well Alliance will select one pilot city to develop a City Urban Agriculture Plan. Seven cities have submitted their interest in becoming the pilot city. As part of our selection process, Food Well Alliance will host a Community Food Forum in each of these cities.
Forums will serve to inform and assess the readiness of both the local government and the local community to participate in a comprehensive and inclusive planning process with Food Well Alliance and Atlanta Regional Commission.

The following cities will host a Community Food Forum in February or March, 2019.

Breakfast, Cookie Exchange & Lighting of the Lake

A lot is happening this Saturday. In the morning is our monthly breakfast, 9:30 – 11:30 at the Beach House. And there may be a special guest coming in from the far north!

Also this Saturday evening, Dec 1, between 6 and 7:30, come to the P.L.A.I.N. Lighting of the Lake and Cookie Exchange at the beach house! For the cookie exchange piece, bring 2-3 dozen homemade cookies to the beach house kitchen, and give them directly to a volunteer there (if you just set them down and walk away, we don’t know who to give a plate of cookies to at the end!). We’ll put some of them out for general consumption, and the rest will be distributed among all of those who also brought cookies. At the end of the evening, retrieve your cookie platter and a bag of assorted homemade cookies!

If baking is not your thing, no worries. Come be with your neighbors and eat some cookies set out for all to enjoy. Hot drinks will be available as well.

Reply to volunteer if you can help with setup and cleanup, or anything inbetween.

Hope to see you there with cookies in hand!

Also we are still looking for warm coats for Rockbridge Elementary School. Bring them to the breakfast.
