Chris Clinton and Isia Cooper started Crack in the Sidewalk Farmlet five years ago hidden away in the forgotten backyard of the city, otherwise known as South Atlanta. Beginning with a small personal garden, they’ve grown to encompass numerous neighboring properties. They’ve transformed a blighted neighborhood into a community based around sustainable farming practices, homesteading skills, and mutual empowerment. Their specialty is foraged wild edibles, heirloom varieties of vegetables and unique crops. You’ll find Chris and Isia and their delicious and unique fruits, vegetables and wild edibles at the East Atlanta Farmers Market and the Grant Park Farmers Market during market season.
