Let's make DeKalb more fruitful together!

Thanks so much for joining us for the first ever DeKalb County Fruitful Communities Forum. By now you've heard a bit about what we're doing with District 6 Commissioner Ted Terry, and learned about how our partners will help us make DeKalb the greenest county in the country.

But the Fruitful Communities program needs you to be truly successful!


Below you'll find all the ways you can get involved.

Take our survey.

We want to know more about what Dekalb residents think about their landscapes. Take the survey, tell us about places you'd like to see changed, and make your voice heard!

Want to support our work?

The best way to support our mission is to give to the Roots Down Fund. We're a for-profit company, so your support is not tax-deductible, but for every $1 we receive, we put 100% back into the local community, building edible landscapes and pollinator gardens, providing jobs training, and educating underprivileged youth. Support Roots Down, and watch your money soar!
When you send $10 a month, you support a robust climate action plan!
