Gilliard Farms' Cocktails & Film
Join us for a farm fresh cocktail hour, featuring muscadine shrub and local spirits. Appetizers will include fresh ingredients from the field, locally-grown produce and wild-caught seafood.
This cocktail and film event is a fundraiser to support Gilliard Farms, a Georgia Centennial Farm that is African American owned and certified organic. Gilliard Farms is run by veterans and siblings, Althea & Matthew Raiford. They are the sixth generation to farm the land.
We will close out the evening with an outdoor screening of Ground Operations: Battlefields to Farmfields. 'Ground Operations' follows the stories of an ensemble of visionary vets who are creating a new life in organic farming and ranching.
