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.
