Sustainable Food Systems for Georgia’s Agrarian Future

In Georgia, demand for local, sustainable food exceeds the supply, but a lack of infrastructure limits the development of a local, sustainable food system. Through a Southern SARE planning grant, the Georgia Sustainable Agriculture Consortium was formed to coordinate and leverage resources across the state of Georgia and to determine the necessary components of a revitalized regional food system. Their conclusions are presented in the white paper, Sustainable Food Systems for Georgia’s Agrarian Future, and are focused around food hubs as an essential element in a sustainable food system.
