South Georgia Local and Sustainable Conference

If you are interested in learning more about sustainable foods or homesteading or beekeeping or even chicken rearing… then visit this day-long mini-conference being held in Reidsville at the Tattnall High School on January 26.

  • Learn all things fermentation from a representative of the Weston A. Price Foundation, Lori Freeman.
  • The amazing Carroll Johnson is back to talk about weeds and weed management.
  • Mighty, mighty Albert Culbreath will teach you Mushroom Culture.
  • What better person to talk about gardening for wildlife than grant-winning naturalist gardener Ellen Corrie?
