For our October event we are going International with the help of Global Growers. Join us on October 16th, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm, where we will experience and learn about their program and their first farm Umurima located in Decatur where our program will take place. It is a One-acre garden managed collectively by 7 farm families. The first farm project of Global Growers that inspired many others to follow suit.

Global Growers is the only organization in Georgia that connects the agricultural talent of the local refugee community to opportunities in sustainable agriculture. Global Growers specializes in providing comprehensive agricultural support including: farmland acquisition and management, aggregation and distribution services which facilitates market access and sales for partner farmers, as well as education and technical assistance in organic fruit and vegetable production. Global Growers is an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Atlanta, GA.

We will tour the farm and garden between 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm. Immediately following the tour we will hear from Global Growers leadership team and continue networking while enjoying food grown and made by the refugees involved with Global Growers. As our event is being held outdoors on a farm, please wear appropriate attire and shoes. This is a rain or shine event.
