COMMUNITY IMPACT FOR A HEALTHIER DOUGHERTY COUNTY.

Here's another great happening from earlier today with Farmer Fredo of Flint River Fresh.

Showing Gratitude During Teacher Appreciation Week at the 5th Avenue Community Garden that is sponsored by Phoebe Putney Health Systems.

This is Teacher Appreciation Week. We are fortunate to have amazing teachers at The Family Tree Child Development Center. Today, they got to pick strawberries, potatoes and other produce at the Phoebe/Flint River Fresh Community Garden. We thank them for their service and all they do for the children at Family Tree. #ThankATeacher

Experiencing Food Scarcity?
Consider a Flint River Fresh & Community Garden to pick FREE fresh fruits and vegetables!

Some community shoppers in Dougherty County stopped by the 5th Avenue Community Garden today. We were happy to be there and help them enjoy their community garden shopping experience.

Email [email protected] for more information about how we can help seniors, low-income households, and others experiencing barriers to healthy food.

Mr. J.C. Odom, Jr. watched with joy on March 31st when the community came out for Planting Day at the center that bears his name.

Imagine our surprise when Mrs. Odom called and was the first to register for the BAG Workshop. We were honored to hear from the community pioneers who championed the transformation of an underutilized space into a childcare facility that later transitioned into a neighborhood hub for fitness and wellness.

Mr. & Mrs. Odom, Mrs. Blanch, and other neighborhood pioneers are still engaged and joined Flint River Fresh and the City of Albany Recreation and Parks to grow good food with good people in the Good Life City.

Learn more about volunteering to keep the gardens growing at flintriverfresh.org/volunteer.
