Liam Rattray Day of Service

  • Truly Living Well Center for Urban Agriculture (map)

Join Generation Green, Georgia Conservancy, members of Atlanta's sustainability movement, urban farmers and friends of Liam for the third annual Liam Rattray Day of Service on Saturday, June 13 at the Wheat Street Gardens at the Truly Living Well Center for Urban Agriculture in Atlanta.

In May 2014, more than 40 volunteers came to the Wheat Street Gardens on a rainy Saturday morning to honor the memory of Liam Rattray with hard work and inspirational stories. Weeds were cleared from flower beds, seedlings were transplanted and compost was compiled in the effort to maintain the gardens at Truly Living Well, an organization and a place that was very special to Liam. 

Both friends of Liam and those inspired by his hard work and dedication to sustainability and improving the urban environment joined together in this first annual service project.

Liam grew up in Atlanta and was one of the city's most promising young environmental leaders. In his sophomore year at Georgia Tech, Liam founded Students Organizing for Sustainability (SOS) and laid the groundwork for Tech's campus garden, community supported agriculture program and sustainable dining committee. His reach extended well beyond the campus setting to community organizations that include Georgia Organics, Atlanta Local Food Initiative, East Atlanta Farmers Market, Truly Living Well Farms, Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance and many more.
