Folk Art Chair (Local Culture), Red Earth Farm © Brian Brown, 2013.
Thanks for making Vanishing South Georgia a useful guide to the local culture that connects us all. The memories you share are helping to create a digital record of our region that will be useful to researchers and those with roots here well into the future. It’s as important as the artist who painted the “Local Culture” chair or the farmer who grew the organic peaches. If we’re not connected by our communities, we’re not connected.
Organic Georgia Peaches, Red Earth Farm © Brian Brown, 2013
If you can, buy local organic peaches. Since my grandfather was a commercial peach grower, I understand that pest controls are necessary, but some of Georgia’s largest growers use more chemicals than you’d care to imagine on your peaches.
