Small farming – Project ideas

Q: I’m on the heart transplant list at Emory – bet you haven’t had too many of us contact you!. When I get out and heal up, I want to do some small farming: animals, orchard, vegetables, etc. on 100 acres I own. Got any references for a project this?

A: To the contrary, my neighbor Missy is a seven year transplant survivor and she regularly asks me gardening questions – good luck to you! The best resource for you is the fine organization Georgia Organics, www.georgiaorganics.org. They sponsor regular education sessions for small farmers, host The Growers Exchange blog and publish a monthly e-newsletter.
