Augusta Food Oasis Attends Farm-to-School Summit

Georgia Organics held its biannual Farm-to-School and Early Care Education Summit last month at Helms College in Macon, GA. Every other year, the Summit connects early care providers, schools, and local farms in an effort to serve healthy meals and snacks, improve student nutrition, and increase farm and gardening educational opportunities. This year, Augusta Food Oasis received scholarships to send three representatives to this two-day event which included hands-on workshops, farm field trips, and educational sessions on topics ranging from food safety and pest management to local procurement and community engagement. “The field trips were fantastic,” says Emily Martin, a gardening educator for Augusta Locally Grown who was attending summit for the first time. “All in all it was a positive experience and we all really got a lot out of it.” See below for photos:
