Georgia Sheep Events
Master Small Ruminant Program
Terrific learning opportunity for the northwest / north central Georgia and southern Tennessee area. It's not too late to register.
Do you love wool?
Are you an experienced fiber artist? A shepherd who wants to learn how to produce desirable fleeces? Someone ready to learn how to process and /or market your wool?
Joanne Maki, Ga Sheep Association Vice President and owner of Georgia Rustic Wool, is heading up a group of Ga Sheep members to learn more about wool: from growing to selling, and all the
steps in-between. At a recent group get together, we skirted fleeces and discussed ways to make dryer balls (picture below).
Contact mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
