Living Better. Locally.
Our Mission is to grow food, communities and opportunities to build a thriving Appalachia. Since 1995, Appalachian Sustainable Development has been working in Central Appalachia to make a difference for the people who call this region home. What began as opportunities for struggling tobacco farmers to grow fruits and vegetables and stay on family farms has become solutions to regional challenges that impacts workforce development, food access and health and wellness.
Appalachian Sustainable Development works in Sustainable Agriculture, Food Access and Sustainable Forestry. We have nine programs across these three sectors all aimed at helping those in need, empowering farmers and promoting sustainability.
