Georgia Small Farm Conference
The Broad River Soil and Water Conservation District sponsored a statewide conference at Unicoi State Park in Helen, Ga., on June 20-21, 2013, that focused on helping farmers with small-scale operations improve their farms and run them more efficiently. Financial assistance through the Broad River Soil and Water Conservation District and the Oconee River Resource Conservation and Development Council covered costs for up to 120 farmers to attend the meeting, which included one night at the Lodge at Unicoi State Park. The two-day meeting included general educational sessions covering major agricultural topics, as well as breakout sessions covering topics unique to small farming operations.
