We are now accepting scholarship applications for the 29th Annual Spring Conference & Market in 2022. 

We would like for everyone and anyone interested in attending the OGS 29th Annual Spring Conference to be able to join. We try our best to keep our ticket prices as affordable as possible, and we are proud to be the lowest cost event of its kind in the Southeast. We have limited funds available and encourage you to seek out other means to fund your ticket if those are available.  Please keep in mind that we are a 501c3 non-profit, and your dollars help fund the organic growing movement. As we continue to raise money for scholarships, we will add those options to this page.
