Georgia Peanut Commission holds ‘Peanut Palooza’ in Tifton
TIFTON, Ga. (WALB) - On Saturday, the Georgia Peanut Commission hosted “Peanut Palooza” to showcase Georgia’s diverse agriculture.
The event featured a state-of-the-art agricultural learning experience for third through fifth-grade students and the general public.
Project coordinator Hannah Jones said promoting the peanut has always been their number one goal.
“We started this event for the community as a way to promote the peanut and show how nutritious and wonderful the peanuts are. Peanuts and peanut butter are a great source of protein, healthy fat, as well as fiber. We have some sandwiches, boiled peanuts, peanut-flavored cupcakes, and all sorts of treats it here for people to try.”
The event also included opportunities for guests to plant their own peanut plant.
