About Us

Georgia Organics champions organic agriculture and healthy families by empowering farmers to thrive, helping schools engage children in delicious and educational farm-to-school experiences, and making organic and local food accessible to all Georgians.

Established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1997, Georgia Organics is an outgrowth of a growers’ collaborative with roots dating to the 1970s. Led by Executive Director Alice Rolls, our 16-member team is headquartered in Atlanta, GA and our programs reach all corners of the state.

Our Mission

We connect organic food from Georgia farms to Georgia families.

Our Vision

One day, all Georgians will be able to choose fresh, organic food, transforming our health, environment, and economy.

Values

  • To Foster a Healthy Environment
  • To Improve Personal Health & Public Wellness
  • To Build a Sustainable Farm Economy
  • To Protect Animal Welfare

Georgia Organics is a member supported, non-profit organization connecting organic food from Georgia farms to Georgia families. We believe food should be community-based, not commodity-based.

An outgrowth of a grower’s association established in the 1970s, Georgia Organics is devoted to promoting sustainable foods and local farms in Georgia.

A sustainable local food system is critical to the future of Georgia’s health, environment, and economy.

Recognizing this vital need, Georgia Organics builds supply through grower education and outreach, and grows demand on the consumer and business end by encouraging market opportunities for local food. We have three key goals:

  • Increase the number of organic and sustainable farmers in Georgia
  • Increase the number of children participating in farm to school programs
  • Increase the number of Georgians eating local, organic food
