Our goal is to help people buy homes so that they aren’t forced to rent their entire lives. Land Conservation Program: ALT works with landowners to protect forests, river and stream corridors, wetlands and other ecologically rich areas, working farmland, and scenic areas in and surrounding Athens-Clarke County. Protecting natural areas sustains critical ecosystem products such as clean air and water, wildlife habitat, biodiversity, water supply and productive soils. Community Agriculture Program: The Community Agriculture Program strives to support Athens Land Trust’s commitment to neighborhood revitalization by developing a sustainable local food system in some of Athens most food insecure communities, strengthening the local economy and building unity and wellness at the community level. The Community Agriculture Program accomplishes this through its Food Justice and Economic Development programs. Our programs work to promote food justice awareness; provide food insecure communities easy access to fresh, affordable natural foods; host education activities; support entrepreneur development; promotes sustainable agriculture and is dedicated to bringing communities in Athens together.
