GMREC: Community Council

Adult Outreach Programs

The Outreach Committee of the Community Council plans seminars and workshops for adults from the surrounding communities.

Our next seminar is coming up on March 23, Organic Gardening. Our speaker is Julia Gaskin, Sustainable Ag Coordinator for UGA's College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Ms. Gaskin will help us understand the importance of biodiversity, both above ground and in the soil. Organic Gardening is more than simply not using pesticides and commercial fertilizer. This seminar will take place in our auditorium at 10 am. No registration is necessary, however seating is limited to the first 100 in attendance.


Seminars and workshops are held at the Georgia Mountain Research & Education Center and are offered free or at low cost to the public. Speakers are experts in their field with the ability to convey this knowledge to their audience. The University of Georgia researchers, faculty and authorities from other agencies have been included in the presentations.
