Atlanta Lettuce Works: Growing In-Demand Greens, Jobs and Businesses Right in the Neighborhood

A story from the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta (GA).

After learning that area hospitals and colleges were buying 90% of their lettuce out of state, CFGA initiated Atlanta Lettuce Works – a greenhouse co-op in downtown Atlanta that will grow hydroponic lettuce and employ 40 resident-owners from poor neighborhoods in sustainable living wage jobs.

Presented by Ellen Macht, Project Manager & Consultant, Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta.
