First Lady Marty Kemp Unveils “Georgia Grown” Mansion with Luncheon for Legislative Spouses

Atlanta, GA – Today, First Lady Marty Kemp proudly announced the Governor’s Mansion is officially “Georgia Grown” with Peach State ingredients and products now showcased at the First Family’s residence. In her role as First Lady, Mrs. Kemp partnered with Commissioner Gary Black and honorary co-chairs Cindy Dickey and Lorna Jackson to highlight Peach State businesses, farmers, and their families at a “Georgia Grown” luncheon for legislators’ spouses.

“The Kemp Family is proudly 'Georgia Grown,' so we are excited to make this brand a central part of our lives at the Governor’s Mansion. By working with the Department of Agriculture and Commissioner Gary Black, I am confident we can take Georgia Grown to the international stage and keep agriculture the top industry in our state,” said First Lady Marty Kemp. “Through Georgia Grown, we can promote farm families and small businesses from every corner of Georgia. I also want to thank Rebecca Corbett for helping our family host this important event at our new home.”

At noon today, the Governor’s Mansion will welcome guests for lunch with a Georgia Grown menu. Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black will join the First Family, honorary co-chairs, legislative spouses, and the Governor’s staff for the day’s festivities.

“We are excited to open this new chapter of the Georgia Grown program and appreciate the opportunity to bring Georgia products into the First Family’s home,” said Commissioner Gary Black. “This is another example of the commitment of the Governor and First Lady putting Georgia’s farmers and small businesses first.”
