Turner volunteers plant first fruit trees at the urban agriculture site

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.

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.
