Recently members of the West Georgia Farmers Cooperative announced they are making their locally grown natural and organic produce available to the tri-city community.
According to Eric Simpson the West Georgia Farmers Cooperative was founded in 1968 in Harris County. “Our mission, since our inception is to rebuild the small farm and agricultural infrastructure of our local communities. We do that by providing sustainably grown food that is accessible and affordable.”
“Twice a month the organization sets up shop in Columbus allowing citizen in the tri-city an opportunity to purchase our produce, says Simpson. The second Saturday of each month you can find us at Kurundi’s Massage Suite & Spa located at 5402 15th Avenue and the 4th Saturday of each month we are at South Columbus United Methodist Church located at 1213 Benning Drive.”
Your WGFC Market Days experience will include an abundance of locally grown natural and organic produce grown by farmers ranging from meats, various seasonal vegetables, home baked treats and other goodies.
“Also, noted Eric, at our July 22 event on Benning Drive we will have a chef on hand cooking and providing tips on how to prepare various foods.”
