This paper focuses on three communities, in southern, eastern and western Georgia. It looks at the current level of involvement in non-farm activities in these communities, in the context of involvement in agricultural activities. Although activities themselves may be non-farm, they are almost always conducted by households which are also involved in agriculture, and in most cases agriculture is the most important livelihood activity in which these households are engaged. Thus involvement in agriculture constrains and influences involvement in non-farm activities.
