GMREC: Community Council

Adult Outreach Programs

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

Check this page soon for the Adult Outreach 2019 Calendar of Events.

July's seminar was on Backyard Milk Goats, and it was fabulous! Pam Berry of Hidden Creek Farm presented information for folks interested in raising just a few goats for their own milk, cheese and entertainment. Pam brought along Pepper who was essential in the milking demonstration, and Miss Gypsy, Pepper's pretty daughter.

Here are Pam and Pepper demonstrating proper milking technique.

One lucky participant got to try her hand at milking!


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.
