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 educational literature, field study, and documentation with teens in a field journal, as well as utilizing speakers who conduct tours or workshops about their field of interest. Common areas of study have been the role of insects in the garden, fertilizing methods, garden maintenance, soil science, the garden through art, 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.
