  • Vegetable Garden Calendar (C 943) The recommendations in this circular are based on long-term average dates of the last killing frost in the spring and first killing frost in the fall. Every year does not conform to the "average," so you should use your own judgment about advancing or delaying the time for each job, depending on weather conditions.
  • Native Plants for Georgia Part I: Trees, Shrubs and Woody Vines (B 987) This publication focuses on native trees, shrubs and woody vines for Georgia. It is not our intent to describe all native species — just those available in the nursery trade and those that the authors feel have potential for nursery production and landscape use. Rare or endangered species are not described. Information on each plant is provided according to the following categories: Common Name(s)/Botanical Name/Family, Characteristics, Landscape Uses, Size, Zones and Habitat.

  • May 19 2022 Farm Stress Summit From healthcare providers and nonprofits to county officials and faith leaders, the 2022 Farm Stress Summit welcomes all who want to further their efforts in combatting farm stress within our communities. Our goal is to learn from each other, connect communities with existing resources and establish partnerships across organizations. Farm family health and wellness is a priority for many rural Georgia communities. As the backbone of Georgia’s number one industry, agricultural producers face unprecedented pressures, including increasing input costs, a flood of produce imports from Latin America, labor shortages, pandemic protocols for worker safety and more. Speakers will focus on farm family health and wellness, including strategies for enhancing collaborations at the local, state and national level to cohesively support farm families as well as proven and emerging practices for combatting farmer mental health challenges.
