About Us

Groundwork Atlanta works strategically and collaboratively to advance environmental projects that improve communities and quality of life in Atlanta. Our initial focus area is historically under-served parts of northwest Atlanta, including the Chattahoochee River and Proctor Creek watersheds.

Mission: To bring about the sustained regeneration, improvement and management of the physical environment by developing community-based partnerships which empower people, businesses and organizations to promote environmental, economic and social well-being.

Our programs include: 
  • Urban Agriculture - In partnership with the Atlanta Mayor's Office of Resilience, we provide access to underutilized land for community gardens and farms, along with insurance and technical support.
  • Brownfield Redevelopment - We work with the U.S. EPA, the City of Atlanta, Trust for Public Land, and other partners to identify and remediate contaminated sites for community-oriented redevelopment.
  • Multi-use Path Network - In collaboration with Riverwalk Atlanta, the Path Foundation, and many others, we support planning and implementation of multi-use paths in Northwest Atlanta.
