"PeachTalks” is a montly series of good food discussions focused on Open Access Agriculture (OAA), tech and our food systems, hosted at FlatironCity. The series is themed "Georgia is our home," and hopes to inspire new agricultural systems to come together and share ideas on our open platforms, ranging from apps to new partnerships. "PeachTalks" will be interwoven with Cochon555-style food and drink experiences.
Following each event, there will be a blog post for developers and tech friends to feast upon including ideas, creative statements and years of combined knowledge and education. Our event on February 28 will be open to a hand-picked group - we'd love to get potential speakers and foodies together to have input on the series.

PeachFest, a non-profit culinary festival on July 29th, 2018. Named after Georgiaʼs most iconic product, the festival celebrates all of this great stateʼs agricultural diversity. The annual festival enriches the Downtown Atlanta community while giving back to local and national charities. Your role as a speaker, partner or sponsor sustains the series of PeachFest events and is pivotal in our success of building a better community.
This year’s theme, “Georgia is our Home” is an initiative to combine responsible agriculture, culinary, and technology alongside traditional recipes and modern chef preparations of Georgia-grown peaches. Imagine your favorite farmers, barkeeps, distillers, brewers and chefs serving up peach-infused classics like crudos, sausage, roasted meats, bbq, ice cream socials and more. At the center of the fund-raising efforts is a silent auction filled with rare, cellared wines and gifts from restauranteurs and sponsors.
