The Georgia Forestry Commission has established a new partnership with Georgia Grown,
a program which promotes the state's locally grown products. Georgia Agribusinesses including farming, poultry and now, forestry, are featured in the member-based program that links producers, processors, distributors and consumers to form one powerful, statewide community.
Georgia Grown is an exciting new tool that will bring our sustainable forests and forest products to the attention of people seeking locally produced goods," said Robert Farris, Director of the Georgia Forestry Commission. "Georgia is a national forestry leader, and this partnership will raise awareness about our abundance of trees and the many benefits they provide, right here at home."
Georgia Grown was established by the Georgia Department of Agriculture in 2011
to help businesses with a vested interest in agriculture become even more successful.
The organization and its brand are desired by a growing number of businesses and consumers who seek to "buy local" in support of sustainability, quality and integrity.
GFC encourages all of our friends in the forestry community to support the Georgia Grown program. It is a great way to create awareness of your products while providing a consistent, branded image for customers. For more information about how you can get involved, visit the Georgia Grown website.
