Five Points Farm

A MARTA Makeover Community Garden

Five Points 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 + 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.
