Member Meetings

The Georgia Mountains Farmers Network is an organization developed by and for farmers. The primary purpose is for farmers to interact and network with other farmers for knowledge exchange and collaboration. For this reason we do not open up our meetings to the general public.

Any farmer who practices sustainable agriculture or is trying to transition to sustainable agriculture can become a member. Simply send us an e-mail that reads something like....

"I am a grower (or other appropriate title) of local food who is interested in sustainable practices and would like to be a member of GMFN."

Email Andrew.NGLG@gmail.com with your contact info, farm name, and location and we'll add you to our Members List and you'll receive e-mails about upcoming meetings. We typically have at least four get-togethers annually. If you would be interested in hosting a get-togethers please let us know.

OUR NEXT MEETING: TBA March 2017
