Peanut Stacking Workshop October 4 at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture

September 25, 2014

The Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College will offer a traditional skills workshop in peanut stacking on Oct. 4 from 9:30 a.m.-noon. Pre-registration is required for this workshop.

Participants can get their hands dirty while discovering the art of peanut stacking. Although it is no longer used due to the technological advances in agriculture, peanut stacking involved farmers gathering the peanut plants by hand and placing them on a stack pole.

The cost of this workshop is $12.50 per person and is open to those 12 years old and up. Youngsters must be accompanied by a registered adult. Interested persons can register for the peanut stacking workshop at www.abac.edu/museum/events.

For more information, Program Coordinator Kelly Scott is available at kscott@abac.edu or at (229) 391.5224. Season passes or daily admission to the Museum can be purchased at the GMA Country Store.
