Georgia Organics Annual Conference

Friday, February 7, 2020 - 8:00am to Saturday, February 8, 2020 - 5:00pm

The Georgia Organics Annual Conference is taking place February 7-8, 2020 in Athens, GA. The annual Georgia Organics Conference & Expo is 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 move our conference around the state, we help grow a united good food movement. We learn and share challenges and solutions, and we showcase and celebrate the transformational work of the people in our movement.

Organic Trade Association's Farm Policy Director, Johanna Mirenda, will be speaking on the following panel at the Conference. For more information, contact Johanna Mirenda
