Meet the Team

The creation of the DeKalb County E.M.B.A.R.C. Community Youth Farm could not have become a reality without the assistance of many key individuals. We would like to thank the Honorable Lorraine Cochran-Johnson and the District 7 team, the Recreation, Parks, & Cultural Affairs Department, and the Human Services Department.
