GNPS to Participate in Alpharetta Community Food Forum

The Georgia Native Plant Society has been invited to participate in the Community Food Forum for Alpharetta residents at Old Rucker Park & Farm on Saturday, December 4, 10-11:30 a.m. Members of the new North Metro Chapter will serve as docents to provide native plant information and explain the role of the park’s native plant garden in attracting beneficial insects for the donation farm’s fruit and vegetable crops.

For Alpharetta, hosting a Community Food Forum is the next step in the selection process for a grant to develop the Atlanta region’s second City Agriculture Plan in partnership with Food Well Alliance and the Atlanta Regional Commission. The grant will be of direct benefit to the community and Old Rucker Park & Farm. The Community Food Forum is an opportunity for residents to learn more about the City Agriculture Plan process, voice their support for a strong local food system, and ask questions.
