Georgia Agriculture Awareness Week

This year marks a significant milestone for the Georgia Department of Agriculture as we celebrate the Department's 150th anniversary of service to the people of Georgia and our state's #1 industry. We're thrilled to embark on a year full of exciting events, including 2024 Georgia Ag Week, March 18th through March 24th, to celebrate the contributions of Georgia's farmers and farm families to the success of Georgia Agriculture.

During this week-long celebration, we'll shine a spotlight on the remarkable individuals, vibrant communities, dedicated organizations, and exceptional products that make Georgia nature's favorite state.

Come together with us to highlight the invaluable contributions to food production, sustainability, and rural development. Participate in engaging educational programs, immersive farm tours, and lively community events aimed at fostering greater awareness of agriculture's profound impact on our lives. Don't forget to share your experiences on social media and tag us as you join in the festivities! Let's celebrate agriculture together! #GaAgWeek; #GeorgiaGrown; #GDA150
