Our Founder is Honored
TLW's Founder & CEO, K. Rashid Nuri has been travelling the country promoting the need to grow  food, create jobs and fill the education gap in our cities. In January, he travelled to Lexington, Kentucky to conduct a workshop entitled, Transforming Communities with Our Farms at the SSAWG annual convention. Rashid also delivered the Keynote Address at the gala dinner. 

February brought a coveted honor from  Georgia Organics . And March opened with Rashid receiving  The Trailblazer award from the Georgia Chapters of The Links. He was also honored with a rousing standing ovation for the impact Truly Living Well is having on improving lives in Atlanta. Congratulations to Rashid on a job well done.

Mark Your Calendars! 
Boot Camp starts again in 
April 2017 

Why grow your own food? B ecause it is your right to have naturally grown, organic food. The  Urban Grower Boot Camp is where like-minded people learn, work, and sweat together to attain the knowledge and skills to grow food. This understanding is an important aspect of food security and self-sufficiency that helps everyone eat and live consciously. Next session begins  mid-April !   Email us at urbangrower@trulylivingwell.com for more information.
