Kwabena Nkromo, is the Founder and Lead Partner of Atlanta Food and Farm, LLC (AF2) and has over a decade of strategic planning, organizational development and agricultural planning experience. Kwabena has worked in the City of Atlanta for much of that time giving voice to under served communities in Southwest Atlanta. He has advised the Mayor’s office on city-wide issues revolving around environmental quality and land use while on the Atlanta Planning and Advisory Committee. It was soon after becoming a founding member of the Atlanta Land Trust Collaborative Steering Committee that his vision for urban agriculture as a vehicle for economic transformation began to take shape. Through leadership of AF2, Kwabena strengthened his presence in the national food policy debate. Atlanta Food and Farm’s implementation of the Choice Neighborhoods Atlanta community food system assessment is now being used by both Emory University and Georgia Tech in their models for urban food sustainability. Kwabena studied at Tuskegee University in Plant and Soil Sciences, Clemson University in Agricultural Economics, and University of Houston in Economics.
