Celebrate Georgia Ag Week With Us
Posted on March 19, 2020 8:00 PM
From apple orchards in north Georgia to row crops in south Georgia, our state is known for its rich agriculture resources. Georgia Ag Week is a great opportunity to spend time with family learning about where your food comes from!
Georgia Ag Week will be held March 23 – March 27. All of the activities have been moved online, so you can show your support for Georgia farmers without ever leaving your home. Check out the fun themed activities planned next week and share your own photos and comments using the hashtag #GaAgWeek2020!
Monday – School Garden Day
Since most school gardens are closed this week, we encourage you to find another way to get hands-on with agriculture. Get your hands dirty in your backyard garden or fill a beautiful pot with a vegetable plant.
Tuesday – Buy Georgia Grown Day
Support your neighbors by purchasing a Georgia grown product today! GFB’s Certified Farm Markets allow you to buy food right from the farm, see how it was grown and even meet the farmer! Their wide open spaces provide a fun, educational outing while still allowing for plenty of social distancing. Please call the farm before visiting to confirm hours. Many others have online stores or can be found in your local grocery store (just look for the Georgia grown section!).
Tip: Today is a great day to buy the ingredients for the recipe we recommend trying on Friday!
Wednesday – Ag Hero Day
Who inspires you? A few Georgia Farm Bureau employees will be sharing about their hero on our social media. We’d love to hear from you!
Thursday – Ag Literacy Day
Take time to read an ag book today! You can find some great recommendations here. Check out the first video in our new Story Time on A Farm series, where our Ag in the Classroom coordinator reads an ag book on a farm and interviews the farmer.
Friday – Make My Plate Georgia Grown Day
Georgia is so rich with agriculture resources - it isn't hard to fill your plate with products from this state. Looking for menu ideas? Here's one from the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
Thank you for supporting Georgia agriculture this week. We look forward to hearing from you!
