On Wednesday, February 27, UGA Students got off to an early start to goin GA Green Industry Association board members at the State Capitol. We beat many legislators to their offices but still had some great visits with some of the folks who matter most. We followed that up with a visit with Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black who shared some fantastic news and had some words of advice for the students. “Shoot for perfection and you’ll achieve excellence every time.” If you know how hard Gary works for Ag in Georgia, you know these are more than just words to him.
Pictured below are GGIA members and UGA Horticulture Students presenting Governor Kemp with a Berkman print of Augusta National. He seemed genuinely surprised and didn’t know the history behind the print – which was a perfect horticultural history lesson.
