Community Service at TLW in Honor of MLK, Jr. Day

Join the urban gardening community service project to help create an urban garden fruit orchard to promote sustainable communities. A day long environmental stewardship activity has been designed to engage the entire family in interactive energy and water conservation, recycling, green jobs and business development.

The activities will include the installation of water conservation and energy devices, compact fluorescent light bulbs exchange and pledge, develop and deployment of waste recycling systems. These activities are in direct alignment with the Mayor Kasim Reed’s 2010 Sustainability Plan to ensure that the City of Atlanta becomes one of the top ten sustainable cities in the country. The project involves:

  • planting nearly 100 fruit trees (apple, pear, cherry, peach etc)
  • planting nearly 200 seedlings for vegetables of all sorts (cabbage, greens, turnips, peas etc)
  • collecting hundreds of pounds of recyclable materials

Hosted by The Center for Sustainable Communities in collaboration with Urban League of Greater Atlanta, Southern Company/Georgia Power, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), City of Atlanta Water Shed Development—Water Efficiency Division, Sustainable Atlanta, HTS Enterprises and the Truly Living Well –Center for Natural Urban Agriculture.
