Imagine a local government, the private sector, universities, nonprofits and the residents of Vine City addressing long-standing challenges and creating a shared vision for this historic neighborhood. Envision a movement that connects the community and creates environmental benefits for this distressed district. The National Black and Latino Council is happy to introduce what we believe will become the future of sustainable community development -
The Vine City Earth Day Festival. As an inner-city landmark transitioning to an eco-urban neighborhood, Vine City must strike a healthy balance between its history, current condition, and burgeoning future. We believe that by teaching local residents to embrace greening their community, they can transform their neighborhood and way of living.
A MODEL OF VITALITY & SUSTAINABILITY We believe that Atlanta is a unique urbanscape comprised of a diverse population of people, businesses and communities. The heartbeat of the city is downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods. While many of the city’s residents are actively engaged in creating new, vibrant communities, there’s still an opportunity for growth and development in some of Atlanta’s oldest neighborhoods.
Vine City and the English Avenue corridor are in need of attention and support. The Vine City Earth Day Festival is an innovative program to include, engage, educate and empower the local residents to transform their community and create a model of vitality and sustainability for years to come. Our mission is to organize an outreach initiative and festival to promote individual and community awareness, development and activism to make Vine City a more sustainable place to live.
The Vine City Earth Day Festival will be an annual event that residents and businesses both enjoy. Our vision is to create an annual festival that introduces innovative solutions to preserve our planet as well as encourage new behaviors and attitudes towards protecting the environment.
Saturday, April 20, 2019, the Vine City Earth Day Festival will bring a wide variety of activities, educational exhibits, and environmentally friendly products and services to the community. The festival will feature food, family-friendly entertainment, vendors, and much more
