CAES to host expanded twilight tour at organic research farm in Watkinsville

UGA organic and sustainable agriculture experts will host their second annual Organic Twilight Tour July 11 from 6-8 p.m. at the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences’ organic research farm in Watkinsville.

Last year’s inaugural tour attracted more than 100 visitors to the Durham Horticulture Farm, where the college’s organic research farm is located.

Farm tours, which are open free to the public, will be held at 1221 Hog Mountain Road in Watkinsville.

Farmers and gardeners will have the opportunity to learn about some of the newest research being conducted at the farm. Researchers and students will give talks and describe demonstration plots where the latest organic cultivation practices are tested. The tour is sponsored by Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education, the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the Piedmont Beginning Farmers Development Partnership.
