ITP is Overrated: Freshen Up Your Life at Volkstuin in Austell

Innovation is the name of the game when it comes to Atlanta’s hottest attractions, but sustainability is also a recurring trend. Volkstuin Founder Andrew Lundstrom joins Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio co-hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick on this week’s Around Atlanta segment to discuss the newest popular destination in Austell.

Though a “cool urban farm” at its core, (Volkstuin means “people’s garden”) this unique community is so much more than that, serving as a gathering spot where community and creativity meet.

Inspired by Container Park in Las Vegas, Volkstuin is a development completely constructed out of shipping containers. Visitors enjoy a variety of amenities such as private office space, 24-hour access, a farm fresh local market, deli sandwiches, uber fresh salads, free wifi, shave ice, craft beer bar, social events, networking parties and gardening workshops, to name a few.

Visitors are invited to visit this weekend for two great barbecue vendors: Hawg’s Best Friend and Circle Smoke BBQ. Beginning Saturday, June 14 and Sunday, June 15 from noon to 9 p.m., the menu is sure to impress with small bites, sandwiches and Volkstuin-inspired dishes.

Perfectly situated just 15 miles West of Atlanta, Volkstuin is located at 2710 Jefferson Street in Austell. Volkstuin is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. To learn more, listen to complete interview above or click here.
