On April 14th, Roots Down is hosting its first Community Forum via Zoom! This event will emphasize the Fruitful Communities Initiative, which is all about bringing Productive Urban Landscapes, job training, and youth activation to DeKalb. We’ll also spotlight the ways DeKalb County residents can get involved. This is an opportunity to learn about your community and actively participate in the development of DeKalb County! Here are the top four reasons why you should attend:
1. Hear from DeKalb commissioners
The forum is going to have local policy leaders and commissioners that want to get to know you. This is a chance to learn about the leaders in your community and how they engage with topics that you are the most interested in. Commissioners Ted Terry and Mereda Davis Johnson will be presenting initiatives in their districts. This is a great opportunity to learn more about what’s happening in DeKalb County and how you can get involved.
2. Connect to local food resources and partners
The forum is for your education and needs. From this forum, you will be able to engage with the local food resources and partners that want to aid your community. We’re working with CompostNow, Servescape, EcoLogic, Green Light, UGA Ext, Ga Audubon, Farmers Jam, DeKalb Parks & Recreation, Concrete Jungle, Wholesome Wave, and Grow With The Flow. These are great organizations that will help DeKalb County grow.
