The Hart County Archway Partnership recently hosted a Georgia Grown webinar as a continuation of the regional conversations to promote agritourism in Hart, Franklin, and Stephens counties. The virtual webinar featured Cheryl Smith, Agritourism Manager with the Georgia Department of Agriculture, presenting information about the Georgia Grown program, why local businesses/organizations/individuals may want to join, and answering questions from local community members about the benefits of membership.

Farmer

Gary Black, the Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture, stopped by The Salt Table booth at a Farmer’s Market to say hello to Carol and Dave and to discuss the many merits of membership in the Georgia Grown program. This event was held at the Atlanta State Farmers Market and was very successful. Just about every food product sold by the Salt Table is produced by Georgia-based small businesses and farmers. They are members of the Georgia Grown Program. The videos below will give you a great idea about the program and the great products produced by these amazing people.
