What role do you play in the local, organic food movement?
I help people understand the importance of eating more fruits and vegetables in order to obtain optimal health. I also teach people about the nutritional, physical, mental and environmental benefits of doing so.
Why are you excited to present your topic?
Because most people have never been exposed to the information and data pertaining to preventing poor health conditions through a healthy nutrient dense diet. Statistics show that 3 out of 4 Georgia residents are not consuming their minimum suggested amount of fruits and vegetables
What are some key takeaways attendees will get from your session?
Practical ways to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into our daily diets as well as information on the benefits of consuming more organic fruits and vegetables.
What are you looking forward too at the Georgia Organics conference?
Networking with good people and sharing our message with the Georgia’s farm & food community.
