Castleberry Hill Arts District, Atlanta, Georgia - We are launching GreenCell communities who learn and work together to identify and implement an array of environmentally impactful solutions for community, restaurant and residential improvements. Categories are water and energy efficiency, resource conservation, waste reduction, recycling, and composting. A few of the MANY solutions include community clean-ups that recycle the waste gathered, restaurants' collective buying arrangements for disposable biodegradable take-out products, free energy-saving tips for the home, and community-sponsored reusable shopping bags.

The project will produce "living documentation" of tools, resources, tips, training kits, and trained GreenCell Ambassadors to help other neighborhoods follow suit.

GreenPlate is excited to initiate the first GreenCell community with the Castleberry Hill Art District in Atlanta, GA. We are selecting Castleberry Hill (castleberryhill.org) for its progressive, diverse community and its hallmark as a destination in Atlanta. There are over 350 families, 10 art galleries and 14 restaurants in the district. Each month an Art Stroll brings in thousands of people from all over Atlanta. The community also hosts loft tours, internationally recognized art events, a community yard sale and more. Neighborhood leadership is primed and committed to being Atlanta’s first GreenCell.

Castleberry Hill sees this opportunity as a way to build community cohesiveness and “spirit”, promote the existing events and have a cleaner and safer neighborhood. We see it as a way to reduce a community's environmental impact and to nurture green growth one GreenCell at a time.
