Guess who's turning 5?

On Tuesday, February 20, 2018, four amazing ScrapATLiens named Susan, Melissa, Roseanne, and Jaime filed Scraplanta's incorporation paperwork and established Scraplanta as its own entity. They continued to build Scraplanta's reach through community programs, pop-up shops, and partnerships with local schools. Thanks to their hard work, Scraplanta became a 501(c)3 non-profit and opened a physical retail store in late 2022. As Scraplanta enters another year of sustainable artistic expression, we look forward to hosting community art workshops and bringing craft supplies to more Metro Atlanta educators.

Scraplanta's 5th Birthday Fundraiser

Surviving 5 years as an arts non-profit is no easy feat, but we're proud to still be here, and we look forward to providing sustainable art supplies and education to the Metro Atlanta community for many years to come. As we enter our 5th year, we need your help with acquiring supplies and software that will improve our donation management systems and keep our store safe!
