Theresa and Anita – B.S. Academy Agriculture Project

Date grant awarded: June 4, 2019

The City of College Park in Fulton County, Georgia is designated by USDA as a food desert. As a result, Theresa Muhammad has established the B.S. Academy Agriculture Project, an academy with youth ranging from 3rd to 12th grade. This work addresses the poor access that the community members and low-income families have to fresh fruits and vegetables by facilitating workshops on urban agriculture. Funds from this grant will allow them to purchase the equipment needed to set up a garden to grow fresh produce and beautify the community.
