Located just one mile from downtown Athens at 235 Northside Drive, The Williams Farm is an oasis in the city where ALT staff, community members, and volunteers work together to grow produce, flowers, and herbs for our weekly farmers markets, CSA program and flower-share, and for donations to local food banks and soup kitchens.
The Williams Farm has a three-part mission:
- Grow and market affordable produce to community residents and businesses, utilizing organic and sustainable production methods to generate a self-sustaining income
- Serve as a model whereby the community will be able to learn about the importance of sustainable farming, healthy diets, and the value of smart and equitable land use
- Provide employment and skill-building opportunities to underserved youth and the low-income community, while contributing to the local economy
