Commissioner Tyler Harper and the Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) are excited to kick off a week of celebrating Georgia’s diverse agriculture with Georgia Agriculture Awareness Week taking place March 20 through 26.

“As we celebrate Agriculture Awareness Week, let us remember that agriculture is way more than just a job – it’s a way of life,” said Commissioner Tyler Harper. “From the gas pump to the grocery store and everywhere in between, Agriculture and the Georgia Department of Agriculture impact all 11 million Georgians every single day. Today we appreciate and celebrate Georgia’s farmers and farm families who work every day to produce the food, fiber, and shelter the rest of us rely on. We can all play a part in ensuring the success of Georgia’s number one industry – Agriculture, and I encourage everyone to join in the celebration.”


The new week-long agenda will now be featuring:

  • Monday, March 20 – Hands-On Garden Day
  • Tuesday, March 21 – Lead the Way Tuesday
  • Wednesday, March 22 – Ag Hero Day
  • Thursday, March 23 – Ag Literacy Day
  • Friday, March 24 – Fork in the Road Friday
  • Saturday, March 25 – Buy Georgia Grown Day
  • Sunday, March 26 – Shop Local Day
