Atlanta City Council Member Cleta Winslow to Lend Support to Two Weekend Community Events

ATLANTA — District 4 Council member Cleta Winslow will take part in two events Saturday, September 7. She will participate in Georgia State University’s Community Service Day at 7:30 a.m. and later join the community in a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. to welcome Wild Heaven West End Brewery and Gardens to the district.

Winslow will first meet with students on campus for a pep rally to launch the community service initiative. She will then travel to the West End and Oakland City neighborhoods for several gardening projects within the communities.

The service locations include the Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture and Gilliam’s Community Garden & Mobile Farmer’s Market. Both locations are dedicated to bringing healthy food choices to members of Atlanta’s urban community and nurturing the neighborhood gardening process. Volunteers for the Community Service Day are welcomed.

“Anytime there is an opportunity to link volunteers to community-based projects, I am thrilled to play a role in bringing those groups together,” Winslow said. “These connections are even more important when it involves making healthy, sustainable foods available for members of the community.”

Following the Community Service Day, Winslow will join the ribbon cutting ceremony at Wild Heaven West End Brewery and Gardens. The event is open to the public and will take place at 1010 White Street SW.

“As we continue the effort to make Atlanta one of the best destinations in the world for culture, food and entertainment, I am pleased that Wild Heaven recognized the value of opening this location in District 4,” Winslow said. “As Atlanta constantly evolves, the hidden gems of District 4 and the historic West End continue to shine as one of the staples in the city.”
