Join ATL Tech Gives Back and Community Bucket to Volunteer and Connect
Entering into its fourth year of rallying local techies to give back, Community Bucket has returned with its most popular community service event, ATL Tech Gives Back, on March 12. These monthly events are the perfect way for you to connect and volunteer in Atlanta if you’re a part of the tech and startup ecosystem (or aspire to be)! Every event will include volunteer projects that take place from 1pm to 4pm, with a social that follows from 4pm to 6pm.
Service Comes First …
For the month of March, participants will choose to volunteer at one of three urban gardens that grow necessary produce for our city. Activities include turning soil, spreading mulch, planting seeds, and preparing for the bountiful spring harvest to come. Here’s a bit more about the urban gardens:
- Aluma Farm: Along the Westside Trail, two farmers strive to transform an old industrial lot into a thriving farm in Adair Park.
- Good Samaritan Farm: Part of the Good Samaritan Health Center and located in a food desert, the farm helps patients receive healthy food options at reduced cost via a prescribed membership.
- Historic Westside Gardens – Urban Fresh: An old apartment complex converted into a community garden that empowers Westside residents through home gardening and improved food access.
… Then Comes Beer
To round out the afternoon, participants will head over to Lean Draft House directly after volunteering to unwind with drinks and appetizers. The first hour of the social will offer drinks and pies, with appetizers kicking things off at 5pm.
