This food forest may become an integral part of the city as, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, around 36% of Atlanta was classified a food desert in 2017 and a quarter of the city’s residents must travel more than half a mile just to purchase some fresh produce, which simply isn't right. This food forest will hopefully change all that and Atlanta will potentially become the first of many different cities which push for legislation that focuses on the wellbeing of their residents and transitions vacant lands into productive spaces that benefit the people, rather than large organizations, as it all too often does
