Newly formed Georgia Agriculture Commodity Commission for Wine and Grapes

I hope you will get this information in a variety of ways. John Scaduto (Rabun County Agent) sent this out this morning, so I am simply copying and pasting his information for this blog. “In case you were not aware of it, I wanted to forward this information about the newly established Georgia Agriculture Commodity Commission for Wine and Grapes. The Georgia Department of Ag is soliciting nominations for the five board members who will serve on the commission.  The applicants must be current producers of wine or grapes. If you yourself, or anyone you know, is interested in being nominated to serve as a board member, there is information in the article outlining the application process. The deadline for submissions is November 27.”
