The Annual Georgia Organics Conference and Expo is one of the largest of its kind in the Southeast. For our 20th Anniversary Conference, we’re going bigger and better than ever.
More than 1,000+ Conference attendees connect with like-minded peers, tour farms, cultivate new skills, and discover more than 70 partners’ exhibit booths with innovative food-and agriculture-related information that will build stronger farms, school gardens, and communities.
Through this experience, we will advance our shared vision: that one day all Georgians will be able to eat organic food from local farms, transforming our health, environment, and economy. This year, the slate of workshops, speakers, and memorable culinary experiences are not to be missed.
In fact, we’re rolling out several new features for the occasion:
Conference is going digital
This year, for the first time ever, we’ll have a new conference mobile app. It’ll have all the details about conference, including maps, schedules, and tracks, but will also allow you to submit session reviews. You will be able to download the app in January.
Farmers, we know you want to get some serious learning done at conference. That’s why we’re busting out an all-day intensive workshop and three farmers-only farm tours that will dive into specific issues. Click here for details.
All day everyday
Are you ready to take your DIY game to the next level? Whether gardening or foraging is more your style, we’ve got two full-day intensive workshops just for you. Click here for details.
The second tiny farmhouse produced in partnership with students at the University of Georgia will be on display for conference attendees to see and walk through. Built by UGA sustainable design students, the tiny house will be delivered to an organic farm after the conference. Georgia Organics will be reviewing proposals this winter to select a qualifying organic farm from a pool of applicants. The selected farm will be announced at the conference. Live small, farm big!
