Truly Living Well  
Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture (TLW) is committed to growing food, community and people. Since 2006, TLW has served the Atlanta community by using natural, GMO-free food production as a catalyst to creating jobs, healthier adults and children and building a safe inner city oasis for families and community to gather.
 
Natural urban agriculture is a social design centered on natural food production in the city. This design empowers communities with food self-sufficiency, builds economic capacity, and maintains stewardship over the local environment. TLW and its founder, K. Rashid Nuri, are at the forefront of a new breed of urban farmers who are helping city planners and developers to connect the dots, bringing vital elements together to create the City of the Future.
