One of Feed Fannin’s purposes is to provide information, education and training to those who want to become more self-sufficient in growing, preserving and preparing their own food. To that end, Feed Fannin started offering education classes several years ago. The classes are free to all who want to attend. All we ask is that you bring a donation of five dollars’ worth of canned goods for the Family Connection Food Pantry.
Following this year’s successful series of education classes, Feed Fannin’s Education Committee met in September with representatives of the North Georgia Master Gardeners (MG) and the Fannin County Young Farmers Association (YFA) to evaluate their collaboration launched in 2018. All three organizations agreed that they should continue working together to help educate the public.
The Education Committee decided to offer four classes in 2019, the first two of which will be the sole responsibility of Feed Fannin. The third class will be conducted by the Young Farmers Association, and the fourth by Master Gardeners.
