Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Global Growers Network connects international farmers who now live in Georgia to agriculture, by growing good food, training farmers, and creating economic opportunities.
- More than 230 international families, representing 12 cultures, grew 180,000 lbs. of culturally appropriate produce through our network of gardens and farms last year. They grow to feed their families and build community, to earn supplemental income, and to prepare for careers as independent family farmers.
- Growers regularly distributed the majority of produce to friends and family, reaching more than 1,100 food insecure members of the community.
- Farmers in our independent farmer training program sold more than 3,800 lbs. of produce through our market co-op, earning over $14,000 in supplemental income.
- Seven farmers completed our year-long training program last year and are prepared to start family farms in Georgia this year.
