100 percent homegrown

Georgia Grown

The state Department of Agriculture’s Georgia Grown program recently partnered with cotton farmers, the Georgia Cotton Commission and the Georgia Industries for the Blind to produce 100% Georgia Grown t-shirts. The shirts, which are composed of fiber grown, ginned, woven and printed in the state, were unveiled recently at the State Capitol as part of a larger discussion about the project’s economic importance for rural communities.
