“Travel has long opened new doors to discovery — and the very nature of hosting lends itself to telling stories, sharing traditions, and understanding history firsthand,” said Catherine Powell, global head of hosting. “We are so pleased to launch the Southwest Georgia Agri-Tourism Trail with Shirley and the New Communities Land Trust, not only to introduce these families to hosting, but also the global Airbnb community to the past, present, and future of Black farming.”
Guests can now book stays on the Southwest Georgia Agri-Tourism Trail at airbnb.com/swgatrail.
