The Awali Resource Center (Awali for short) is a five-acre veganic homestead and education center situated near Stone Mountain in the Atlanta metro area. Awali houses an organic seed library, wellness space, greenhouse, training kitchen, and veganic farm. Its function and development serve as a living laboratory and sustainable prototype of suburban green spaces and sanctuaries.
With 33+ years of collective experience, Jo’Vonna Johnson-Cooke and Eugene Cooke lead a dedicated team transforming under-utilized land into plant-based foodscapes within the broader community. Abundant with nutrient-dense and protein-rich crops, these urban agricultural hubs strengthen community ties, while promoting personal and planetary health through plant-based foods and farming.
