Living Better. Locally
Living better. Locally: its our tag line. It’s also what drives our commitment to propel our mission to transition Appalachia to a more resilient economy and a healthier population by supporting local agriculture, exploring new economic opportunities and connecting people to healthy food.
And since 1995, we have 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.
