Liam Rattray Day of Service this Weekend

Posted by Admin On 10:10:00 AM
Join Generation Green, the Georgia Conservancy, members of Atlanta's sustainability movement, urban farmers and friends of Liam for the annual Liam Rattray Day of Service on June 13 at the Wheat Street Gardens at the Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture in Atlanta.

Liam grew up in Atlanta and was one of the city's most promising young environmental leaders. In his sophomore year at Georgia Tech, Liam founded Students Organizing for Sustainability (SOS) and laid the groundwork for Tech's campus garden, community supported agriculture program and sustainable dining committee. His reach extended well beyond the campus setting to community organizations that include Georgia Organics, Atlanta Local Food Initiative, East Atlanta Farmers Market, Truly Living Well Farms, Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance and many more. On Memorial Day 2011, just weeks after graduating from Georgia Tech's Honors Program with his bachelor’s degree in public policy, Liam was killed by a drunk driver in Little Five Points while on his moped. This loss was a stunning blow to Atlanta's sustainability community and all the people whose lives Liam touched.

Join us in honoring his memory. Participation is free and we encourage you to invite friends and family.
