Join us at Wylde Center, where we connect people to nature to build more sustainable communities. Every day through education, exploration, food and play, we engage our community with the natural world to advance sustainable urban living, environmental stewardship, and local food.
The organization strives to provide an environment that cultivates a spirit of service, respect for diversity, global citizenship and character. Our commitment to a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture is reflected in a community in which differences are embraced, and staff, volunteers, and community partners have a sense of belonging.
At Wylde Center, we hire culturally competent and responsive candidates who believe in the critical importance of diversity, equity and inclusion in the success of an organization and can effectively incorporate those principles in their professional roles. Wylde Center actively seeks candidates from historically underrepresented populations.

Who We Are
The mission of Wylde Center is to educate, cultivate greenspaces and build community in the areas we serve.
Wylde Center accomplishes this through educational programs, events and greenspaces that actively engage youth, families and individuals in their environment, health and community, and that develop skills in environmental science, sustainable urban living, organic gardening, health, and nutrition.
Wylde Center was founded in 1997 out of a need to provide opportunities to experience nature in an urban environment. As a result of the community’s involvement and commitment, the organization has evolved into a large and active nonprofit organization operating five greenspaces (Oakhurst Garden, Sugar Creek Garden, Hawk Hollow, Edgewood Community Learning Garden, and the Mulberry Fields Garden) in four different Decatur and Atlanta neighborhoods, open year-round for the community, for events and for Wylde Center’s educational programs.
Additionally, Wylde Center provides one of the largest youth environmental and science education programs in metro-Atlanta, including the Decatur Farm to School program, Atlanta Farm to School, Healthy Living by Healthy Growing at the Decatur Housing Authority, and science program and field trips linked to Common Core standards.
