Location: Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture, East Point, GA

Featuring: Urban Farmers K. Rashid Nuri and Eugene

K. Rashid Nuri built an urban farm where there had once been an Atlanta housing project. “Food is integral to the overall development of any community,” he says. “It is the beginning and the end. Sharing food with another human being is one of the most intimate experiences you can have. But it’s not just about something to eat, just as food deserts are about more than geography; they happen where jobs are scarce and education is poor. That’s why Truly Living Well provides more than just quality food through its markets and CSAs. They use workshops, summer camps and a variety of other educational tools to engage the community.”

"There is no culture without agriculture." - Rashid Nuri

Rashid Nuri sits down to talk about his vision for educating people about the food that defines them. He believes the educative process is transformative. Truly Living Well, Nuri's organization, grows better communities by connecting people with the land through education, training, and demonstration of economic success in natural urban agriculture.
