From Emory University Athletics
The Emory softball team recently ventured to nearby Stone Mountain where they volunteered at Global Growers, clearing brush, extracting weeds, and laying down new paths for disadvantaged farmers.
The mission of Global Growers Network (GG) is to create opportunities in sustainable agriculture in Georgia, by growing good food, training farmers, and providing economic opportunity.
Global Growers grew out of the tremendous demand among international farmers, many who came to Atlanta as refugees of war, to reconnect to their agricultural heritage in their new home. Recognizing this exceptional talent, Global Growers connects local families to land, education, and markets in order to build healthier communities and strengthen our local economy. We are committed to cultivating diverse farmers who are traditionally under served by mainstream agricultural service providers.
