Flint River Fresh

Fresh Food. Fresh minds. Fresh perspectives.

The Flint River Soil and Water Conservation’s urban program is based in Albany, Georgia and began in 2016 with a grant from the National Association of Conservation Districts. In July of 2017, the District hired Fredando Jackson as the Urban Program Coordinator. Over the next several months, Jackson, District leadership, and community partners worked together to build a sustainable foundation for the program. Now, the urban program is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization called Flint River Fresh. Flint River Fresh is carrying the District’s vision for urban agriculture conservation in Albany to a new level. We continue to support Flint River Fresh as it grows and becomes a model for other communities throughout our District and state.
