The man from down on the farm is being honored in the big city on Thursday, October 11. Georgia Conservancy is honoring Will Harris of White Oak Pastures as its 2012 Distinguished Conservationist for his dedication to advancing sustainable and organic farming in Georgia. White Oak Pastures is Georgia's largest USDA-certified organic farm, fielding the only on-site USDA-inspected poultry and beef abattoirs in the U.S., a zero-waste processing plant with recycled water used on-site, an anaerobic digester that converts cow parts to all-natural fertilizer, and facilities relying on solar-generated power. Cattle and poultry lead a free-range, antibiotic-free lifestyle on the farm, which leads to more healthful eating in the city. EcoBenefête guests will dig cocktails, a locally sourced dinner paired with wines, dancing, a silent auction, and the awards presentation by Mara Davis. Purchase tickets here for the 6:30 p.m. event at The Foundry at Puritan Mill.
