[NOT IN USE] Donation
Like other large urban areas, Atlanta has a number of "food deserts" where it is difficult for residents to get fresh fruits and vegetables. Mechanicsville is one such "food desert". To help residents be able to find good food, we'd like to build a Farm Stand, and allow residents and other urban growers to sell food on the weekends.
We will provide training to some of the local homeless and disadvantaged residents so they can begin to help themselves in fixing up or building their own structures. The Farm Stand will be the first, and the neighborhood will pitch in to build it.
For this project, we'll need lumber, some tools, fasteners, and paint/stain. Once completed, we will work with Patchwork City Farms to determine the best way to operate the project.
