The annual Georgia Organics Conference & Expo is all about fostering community – a community of farmers on the path toward prosperity, and a community of Georgians interested in supporting healthier foods, farms, and families. As we annually move our conference around the state, we also foster a united good food movement, learning and sharing challenges and solutions, and showcasing the transformational work of the people in our movement.
On July 4, 1976, as our country was celebrating its Bicentennial, the opening of Tifton’s Agrirama cemented the city as the agricultural epicenter of the South. Today, the 95-acre site is known as Georgia’s Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village, which is maintained by Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. When Georgia Organics decided to bring our annual conference to South Georgia, there was no question that it needed to take place in Tifton, with a goal of bringing people in the good food movement together in South Georgia and from all across our state. As conference approaches, we are excited to learn from the work of our South Georgia partners who are growing the good food movement. This is a valuable opportunity for folks from all over the state to cross-pollinate and network. Most of all, we can’t wait to celebrate South Georgia. See you in Tifton!
