Georgia Grown unveils Seasons and Faces of Georgia Agriculture exhibit at Georgia National Fair
The Georgia Department of Agriculture’s Georgia Grown program will unveil a Seasons and Faces of Georgia Agriculture exhibit tomorrow, October 2, 2014, at 2:00pm at the 2014 Georgia National Fair in Perry, Georgia.
Contributing nearly $77 billion to the state’s economy, agriculture continues to be Georgia’s main economic driver. The goal of the Seasons and Faces of Georgia Agriculture exhibit mirrors that of the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Grown program: to not only improve the understanding and importance of Georgia’s agriculture industry to the public, but also to solidify the connection between the grower and the consumer.
The purpose of this interactive exhibit is to give insight into the abundant economic impact of Georgia’s agricultural industry and highlight many of the great families and people that provide it. Through this exhibit, consumers will have the opportunity to meet some the farmers that work tirelessly through spring, summer, fall and winter to provide the delicious and affordable food we all enjoy.
The Seasons and Faces of Georgia Agriculture exhibit is located in the Georgia Grown Building on the Georgia National Fairgrounds. A map of the facility can be found here.
