The first Atlanta Collard Green Cultural Festival in 2010 was a resounding success! Many new collaborations arose out of this festival, including the People's Village Project, the Center for Sustainable Living, the Sustainable Seeds Initiative and an exciting Black Farmer's Market.
The upcoming 2017 festival will be the 8th annual and we look forward to MACGCF being a permanent tradition in Georgia as it is in East Palo Alto, California. We look forward to the day that the Collard Greens Cultural Festival will be a festival sustained throughout the nation.
To celebrate the traditions, culture and historical contributions of African Americans while promoting family unity and the importance of healthy eating and living for the wellbeing of future generations.
