Where you live too often determines how you live.


If you live in Metro Atlanta's South DeKalb County, Georgia, the probability is high that you or a loved one are dealing with a chronic health condition and struggle to find access to fresh, healthy food. 


Partners in Action for Healthy Living (PAHL) works hard every day to change these conditions by partnering with residents, schools, churches, other nonprofits and, county government to make South DeKalb a place where all citizens have access to fresh, wholesome food. 


Partners in Action for Healthy Living's mission is to empower South DeKalb residents to make healthy choices that support their best quality of life. We do this by empowering and educating individuals through gardening and urban agriculture, connecting people to the land, to their food, and, most importantly, to each other.

WHAT WE DO

  • We encourage our community members to grow their groceries in our Belvedere Peace Community Garden and the many other gardens we support.
  • We grow fresh fruits and vegetables for local food pantries, the families of our children program participants, and seniors in the community.
  • We support school, faith-based, and community gardens in our community, which helps support the local food system, so everyone has access to healthy, fresh food.
  • We provide beautiful places in our community to gather, learn, grow, share, and enjoy.
  • We cultivate youth as leaders and agents of change through gardening and urban agriculture. 
  • We demonstrate sustainable practices that nurture, sustain, and protect our air, land, and water.
