Greyfield Inn

Georgia Organics invites you to enjoy an extraordinary experience at Greyfield Inn on Cumberland Island from May 6-8, 2016. Join us in celebrating the best organic, locally-grown, and responsibly-sourced food from the Georgia coast, savored on one of America’s most wild and pristine natural havens.

At “A Taste of the Georgia Coast” experience Georgia Organics’ many initiatives firsthand—from supporting and nurturing local farmers, to making fresh, healthy food more accessible to families. Meet growers and producers who are implementing responsible and innovative farming and fishing techniques along coastal Georgia. Engage in conversations about organic farms, food, and Georgia’s fragile ecosystems with guest speakers and Georgia Organics Executive Director, Alice Rolls.  Have a one-on-one chat with Gogo Ferguson, renowned jewelry designer, Cumberland Island resident, and family member, who has been transforming the nature of the island into wearable art for over 30 years.

Experience a truly unique Island Dinner on Greyfield Inn’s veranda featuring produce grown at the inn’s own Greyfield Garden, prepared by chef Whitney Otawka, and Guest Chef Mashama Bailey from The Grey in Savannah.

Hear about innovative techniques from these special guests:

Rafe & Ansley Rivers, Proprietors, Canewater Farm
Erik Vonk, Proprietor, Richland Estate
Kevin Ryan, CEO, and Meredith Sutton, Creative Marketing Director, Service Brewing
Rob Hein, Aquaculture Extension Agent for University of Georgia Marine Extension Service

Other weekend highlights include a Low Country boil with Service Brewing; an oyster roast and Richland Rum tasting with live music around the fire pit; a late-night turtle walk; naturalist-guided hikes; and plenty of time to unwind and enjoy the island’s rugged, natural beauty and history. The weekend will conclude on Sunday, May 8—Mother’s Day—with ample time to explore Cumberland Island’s trails and beaches.
