As an entirely volunteer-run organization, our growth depends on dedicated and enthusiastic members. Our volunteers have fun with food in the community, whether it’s hosting the Slow Food Atlanta table at a nearby farmers’ market, serving as a docent for the Lexicon of Sustainability, planting heirloom seeds at a local school garden or checking in guests at one of our many events. We appreciate your willingness to help us help our community.
