WE ARE THE OCONEE CULTIVATION PROJECT
Since 2016, our 501(c)3 nonprofit has provided education on sustainable agriculture and culinary practices while focusing on environmental preservation, protection of consumer health, and community involvement. We present this information through monthly educational workshops, our free summer youth program, and access to community gardens. Our volunteers are passionate farmers, gardeners, homecooks, chefs, and business owners who wish to share their knowledge with the community.
Common areas of study have been regenerative agriculture, pollinators, animal welfare, fertilizing methods, garden maintenance, soil science, kitchen safety, food preparation, and meal planning.
Thriving communities across Oconee County that are rooted in local food, agricultural traditions, and sustainable living practices.
Empowering the people of Oconee County with education in agricultural and culinary practices informed by local foodways.
