EAT South is an urban teaching farm that engages our community by gathering people around, educating about and growing good food. We empower people to change the way food travels from the ground to our plates.
Located on the banks of Alabama River in Muskogee/Creek territory, E.A.T. South sits on top of an old railroad switching yard in downtown Montgomery, Alabama.
Proud to be a part of Alabama's sustainable agriculture tradition rooted in the work of George Washington Carver and Booker T. Whatley, we envision a food system where people can access fresh food from farmers, grow and prepare their own food, and are healthy as a result. We believe that a thriving local food system includes: healthy soil, air and water, profitable farms and other food-related businesses, access to seasonal produce, access to information about growing and preparing your own food, a healthier community, access to land, capital and resources by people previously excluded from food and farming systems.
E.A.T. South is a city park, an outdoor classroom and a source for locally grown fruits and vegetables. Through workshops, after school and summer programs, special events and classes, we offer hands-on, garden-based education to people of all ages. We invite you to explore our programs; check out our calendar for upcoming activities; follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube; and stop by the farm for a visit. We are open Tuesday - Saturday, typically 8 am - 5 pm, but times tend to vary with the seasons. Check our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information about farm hours.
