Come out and learn more about urban gardening while exploring our gardens. Collegetown is a beautiful oasis in the Historical West End of downtown Atlanta, and we also have a site in the Historical City of East Point. Each of our sites has a unique personality that demonstrates successful food production in urban environments. Our guided tours are educational and engaging. They are designed to build excitement around the world of urban agriculture. Groups of all sizes and ages are welcome!
Our guided tours enable visitors to reconnect with the land, see fruits and vegetables in different stages of growth, and learn many interrelated aspects of natural farming.The tours can easily be aligned with your school’s and/or organization’s learning goals and/or curriculum.
Tours can be scheduled Monday through Saturday (year round) 9:00am – 5:00pm. We ask that you schedule your tour at least 2 weeks in advance.
