Bamboo Creek Farm, Stone Mountain

2017 Toast to the Culture in Agriculture

The 2017 Toast to the Culture in Agriculture brought more than 150 Global Growers friends, supporters and farmers together for a beautiful afternoon on May 21st, at our Bamboo Creek Farm in Stone Mountain.


Let's make a toast to the new food and agriculture traditions that we are creating together here in Georgia.

Global Growers farm families, who have come to the U.S. as refugees from countries such as Burma, Malaysia, Nepal, Bhutan and Burundi, are growing a vast variety of fresh spring greens. Farmers and local chefs prepared seasonal tastings featuring the best of spring vegetables and a world of flavors. In addition to the food tastings, we offered live music, farm tours, kids activities and much more. Attendees cam dressed in farm-casual attire and brought their friends and families as this is an event for all ages with plenty to eat.
