VOLUNTEER

We are always in need of more Friends of English Avenue. A number of ongoing projects and future plans for FEA means we need you! See the options for volunteering below and contact Friends of English Avenue (FOEA@gdp.com or 678-385-7091) to arrange a volunteer time.

Volunteer AT the Urban Farms

FEA Garden

Get your hands dirty in the Friends of English Avenue Urban Farms!  The English Avenue Urban Farm is located on the corner of North Avenue and Joseph E. Lowery and the Elm Street Urban Farm is located at 382 Elm Street NW. Come prepared to help us plant, dig, and harvest the thousands of pounds of fruits and vegetables that we provide to 25 English Avenue families.

Volunteer to Clean Streets

As part of our mission to beautify English Avenue and reduce crime, we perform Street Clean-Up’s several times per month. English Avenue is a neighborhood where outsiders often dump their unwanted trash and no city wastebaskets are present, which results in a lot of litter and overgrowth throughout the community.  Improving the physical appearance of the neighborhood (litter removal and cutting back overgrowth) is proven to reduce criminal activity in the surrounding area.  We are open to small groups and individuals wishing to assist in street cleaning.
