The Chestatee-Chattahoochee Resource Conservation and District in partnership with the Georgia Soil & Water Conservation Commission and Natural Resources Conservation Service will be hosting a small farm conference Nov. 28-29, 2018, at Unicoi State Park in Helen, Ga.

The goal of the conference is to educate farmers with small-scale operations on ways to improve their operations and make them run more efficiently. The two-day conference will feature general sessions that will cover major agricultural topics, as well as breakout sessions that will cover unique topics of interest to small farming operations.

Registration for the conference is $220 per person; however, through sponsorship from the Chestatee-Chattahoochee RC&D, the first 120 people to reserve a spot will receive a fully-paid scholarship for the event. Registration must be received by Nov. 21, 2018.

For more information, and to register for the event, contact the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission in Athens at 706-552-4470.
