Projects with a Purpose. Thank you fromTruly Living Well.
Thirty five volunteers attending the Annual Spring Convention in Atlanta from Kraton Corporation, market leader in polymer technology, chose Truly Living Well for this year's community service program.  In partnership with Projects With Purpose, these volunteers boarded a motor coach from their host hotel during a down pour headed to our Collegetown farm stead fast to get the work done.  

During the ride, these volunteers learned a bit about TLW and the communities we serve through food as a platform, and enjoyed a "taste of the garden" boxed lunches.  Projects completed were building new chicken coop, goat pen, and mulching several areas between the deluge of rain.  Kraton, much like TLW, seeks solutions that are sustainable and believe innovation is endless: the chicken coop, and goat pen are indeed resources to further urban agriculture education.
