Fourth Ward Alliance Needs Neighbor Input on Safety Issues

Fourth Ward Alliance Needs Neighbor Input on Safety Issues

Atlanta, GA--  For more than a year, several Old Fourth Ward residents have been researching and evaluating the possibility of developing a privately funded (membership and sponsorship) security and quality of life patrol focused on parts of the Old Fourth Ward. We believe we have gathered enough information and we are in the final evaluation stages of the effort.

As part of our final evaluation, we would like as many residents and business owners of the Old Fourth Ward to complete a brief survey on this topic so that we can gather feedback and information to help us determine if there is truly interest in the O4W for a security patrol. This survey is a critical last step in our evaluation process of whether or not to move forward and we very much appreciate you taking a minute to complete the survey.

Join Councilman Hall for the Groundbreaking of a 4 Acre Urban Farm in O4W

Atlanta, GA--  City dwellers will soon be able to receive all the trappings of the country life with the addition of a new 4 acre urban garden.  The site will be called The Truly Living Well Wheat Street Garden and Mayor Reed and others will breakground on Sunday 12/5 at 2pm. 

The site came into fruition via an agreement with the Wheat Street Baptist Church to lease the 4 acres in the historic Old 4th Ward.  The site is to serve as not only a working/profitable farm but also a learning center to help educate the surrounding community about healthy eating.

The site, which used to be a housing project, will now grow vegetables in regenerated soil, raised beds, greenhouses and hoop houses.

The work is being funded by generous investment from the Arthur M.Blank Foundation and the Environmental Protection Agency.
