Five Points Farm
A MARTA Makeover Community Garden
The Community Farm at Five Points MARTA station, aka the Five Points Farm, was established in 2016 thanks to a partnership between Central Atlanta Progress and the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (CAP/ADID) and MARTA. In spring 2018, we’ve partnered with the City of Atlanta’s Office of Resilience and many others to expand the farm and make it an even better amenity for the Downtown community.
A facet of the Five Points MARTA Makeover Project, the Farm is one of many tactics that aims to enhance the station with regular community programming and a positive experience for MARTA patrons.
