Georgia Organics

Georgia Organics is a nonprofit membership organization whose mission is to integrate healthy, sustainable and locally-grown food into the lives of all Georgians. Dating back to the 1970s as a grower association, Georgia Organics has served as the state├ó┬?┬?s leading educator in organic and sustainable agriculture. Offering classes, farm and garden tours, talks and other events, it educates consumers as well as farmers, gardeners, and agricultural professionals. Georgia Organics produces a highly-regarded local food guide and offers a mentoring program that links successful organic farmers with producers new to organics. It helps existing growers improve production and marketing and has supported efforts to improve farmto- school programs in Georgia. A recent collaboration with Emory University's Sustainable Food Initiative will provide a ├ó┬?┬?farmer liaison├ó┬?┬? to help expand the supply of sustainable and organic production in the state. Georgia Organics├ó┬?┬? annual meeting is a highlight of the agricultural year, and the organization has played an increasing role with institutions of policy, research, outreach and education to improve and increase organics in Georgia.
