EAT South acts to lead change throughout the broader community. Here's how:
• EAT South's Model Farms
We operate two urban farms in Montgomery, Alabama. The Downtown Farm is located on the banks of the Alabama River at the heart of downtown's regeneration effort. Hampstead Farms in East Montgomery is located in a New Urbanist community. Both farms grow all-natural, seasonal produce and offer educational opportunities for the region.
• Community Gardens
EAT South provides community members in Hampstead with their own plots to grown their own organic produce and flowers, as well as a way to connect with our education programs. EAT South also partners with existing community gardens to provide technical support and supplies for gardens to continue making an impact.
• Weekend Workshops
EAT South offers a monthly series of organic gardening classes to the general public. This series welcomes the general public to learn about organic farming methods and fresh, local food.
