On September 3, 2014, FoodCorps volunteers worked in the Burgess Peterson Academy garden. They will be helping work and improve the school garden over the next year. The garden is an extension to classroom learning and also is working to offer fresh garden items to the school’s cafeteria.
Georgia Organics applied to the FoodCorps organization to serve as host for their organization here in the State of Georgia. Through a 15-page application, Georgia Organics had to explain why Georgia needed the FoodCorps program. FoodCorps (https://foodcorps.org/) has worked successfully to connect farms and schools across the United States. “Georgia Organics had to compete with 17 other states,” said a representative from Georgia Organics.
