Planting an organic garden is an activity typically reserved for bougie hipster types who have the time, money and training to get behind the cause. But a homeless shelter in Atlanta is opening up that skill, and approach to responsible farming, to its residents.

“It is important to share and train residents in green technology that we are involved in because poor and homeless people are being left out of the green development that we see burgeoning in our community,” Anita Beaty, executive director of Metro Atlanta Task Force, told Atlanta Progressive News.
