Our Mission

By using urban agriculture as a bridge to connect our diverse communities, we are able to learn and grow together while forging meaningful relationships and feed communities. Our mission is to create vibrant and participatory food systems that ensure equitable access to healthy food for all families.

Our Urban Farms

Combined, our three partner farms grow approximately 5,000 lbs of high quality produce each year. Next year, we are positioned to produce even more as Paideia relocates its urban farm to a larger plot of land in south Atlanta. The new farm will be closer to THES and the women’s center, which will allow the alliance to better support each other.

Thomasville Heights Elementary School

At THES, all grades have access to the farm to explore the natural world and for hands-on lessons, and 3rd and 4th graders use the garden as a quarterly project-based learning project on change-making, food insecurity and how to feed the community.

The Paideia School Farm

Through urban agriculture, students, teachers, and parents learn about the synergistic relationships between growing crops, eating, raising animals, reusing waste, and the related nutritional and environmental benefits.

Metro Atlanta Transitional Center

This center, which assists residents completing felony sentences, now has its own urban farm to help equip women with skills to help them reintegrate into employment and community life.
