UGA Organic Twilight Tour on July 11 Postponed
WATKINSVILLE, Georgia -- University of Georgia organic and sustainable agriculture faculty have postponed the July 11 Twilight Tour at the Organic Research Farm in Watkinsville due to this week’s heavy rain and very poor field conditions.
The fields surrounding the farm and the farm roads are just too wet to accommodate guests, with some fields holding puddles with an inch of standing water, said Julia Gaskin, sustainable agriculture coordinator for the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the event’s organizer.
With a chance of rain forecast for Thursday, conditions are not going to get any better before the tour.
Gaskin plans to reschedule the event in the coming weeks. Those who were planning to attend the event this Thursday should stay tuned for the new date.
