The 5th Annual GA Farm to School Summit will take place on Feb. 19 and 20th followed by the 18th Annual Georgia Organics Conference on Feb. 20 & 21st. Both conferences will take place at the Classic Center in Athens.
The conferences are operated separately, but overlap each other on Friday. Each conference offers excellent opportunities for both teachers and FFA members to participate in hands on workshops, educational sessions, field trips and gain valuable insight from speakers. We'd love to have a strong FFA presence at both conferences. Registration opens November 24th for both conferences. I need to know by December 8th if you/your students or your chapter are seriously considering attending so that we can work through the details of registration, cost to attend, and participation.
