Turner volunteers plant first fruit trees at the urban agriculture site
posted in Environmental Initiatives, Volunteer // 11/26/13

We are always so thankful for our volunteers, and this year, Turner Volunteer Day brought folks out to the Urban Agriculture site on the southwest corridor. Employees from Turner Broadcasting come together annually to volunteer for nonprofits, and over 90 Atlanta Turner employees came out to the Urban Agriculture site this year.

Twenty-six trees were planted, including three varieties of fig trees, which represent the first fruiting trees planted at the site.

Trees Atlanta donated the trees and will continue to care for them after the planting. In addition to the fig trees, through the Trees Atlanta Neighborwoods program, crabapple, native plum and persimmon trees were also planted throughout the Adair Park neighborhood.

The volunteers also cleaned up the Southwest Corridor behind the Urban Agriculture site by removing trash and debris.

We couldn’t be more grateful for these and all of the volunteers that help to make the Atlanta BeltLine a clean, vibrant urban space! To find out about how you can get involved with the Atlanta BeltLine, check out the volunteer page on our website.
