Blueberry pilot project
MetadataShow full item record
The University of Georgia as a land-grant institution has evolved with increasing community engagement and a commitment to sustainability. Working with The University of Georgia Office of Sustainability, a pilot project was crafted in order to determine the feasibility of incorporating Georgia-grown and sustainably grown blueberries into University of Georgia Food Services. Through the process of identifying the product, potential farmers, and understanding the bid system at The University of Georgia, certain barriers were discovered. Recommendations for both the state-scale and university-scale are given for the future success of carrying Georgia and sustainable products on campus.
