A CORNUCOPIA OF THANKS!
This has been a truly amazing week at Augusta Locally Grown. Astounding, really. And deeply humbling given that so so so many people came together to make it all happen.
- The launch of the Urban Ag Boot Camp at Icebox Urban Farm kicked it off last weekend. The buzz is that it was tremendous, and will only continue to get better! It’s so inspiring to witness the power partnership of Georgia Organics, Georgia Food Oasis, Habesha and Icebox Ministries coming together to make the dream of Augusta-based city farms come true.

- The employee health fair at the Augusta National Golf Club was a true honor to attend. Hugs to Amy and Patrick Sutter for making that (and so many other things) happen.
- And the flurry that is the Harvest Bytes over at the Clubhou.se is coming together as I write. So many people to thank for this one … we’ll do it right once the wonderfulness of it all has come to a close.
There are still a few tickets left for the Harvest Bytes farm to table dinner. But just a few:) Hope to see you there!
