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 Backyard Milk Goats on WEDNESDAY, July 18 at 10 am. Pamela Barry, owner of Hidden Creek Farm and special guest "Gucci," Senior LaMancha dairy doe, will present everything you need to know about the care and milking of dairy goats. The delicious and nutritious your family can enjoy by raising goats on a small scale will be discussed.


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.
