Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture
Truly Living Well grows healthier, more self-sufficient and economically sustainable communities by connecting people through the land through farming, education and outreach.
In 2005, a group of interested citizens and organizations began dialogue around a new approach to producing and supplying fresh food for Metro Atlanta. Their resulting plan envisioned a transformed system in which every Atlantan had access to nutritious and affordable food produced by a thriving network of sustainable farms and gardens. Their hope: fresh and healthy foods, grown and distributed locally, while improving the social, environmental, and economic well-being of our community.
TLW has since become one of the leaders in this movement, dedicated to using organic farming in urban areas as a means of connecting people to healthier foods and providing agriculture-based training and jobs.
Founded in 2006, by Rashid Nuri, TLW has used its expertise and resources to show how food can be a bridge across diverse cultures, backgrounds, and experiences. It’s first farm, TLW@ East Point was founded in 2007. In 2010, TLW created a highly productive, broadly diversified farm site in the middle of the city, Wheat Street Garden in Atlanta's Old Fourth Ward. From there, TLW empowered a community to grow their own food, make healthier food choices, and develop a sense of environmental stewardship—and thus helped to create a place where people were truly living well. In 2016, TLW moved to its new permanent location, Collegetown Farm in the Ashview Heights community on Atlanta's west side
