The Walnut Way Conservation Corporation established itself as a resident-driven, community development nonprofit by reclaiming a vacant building and planting peach trees. Since that first revitalization and planting in 2006, the Lanier Heights nonprofit has blossomed into managing more than 100 urban agriculture sites. Profits from harvesting and selling hundreds of pounds of peaches, cherries, and other produce is utsed for supporting workforce development programs, solar energy installations, and other assets for the neighborhood.  More about this project >
