“Sustainable Developments” Newsletter

“Do you ever step back and realize that you’ve gotten so immersed in what you do that you forget that to a lot of people what you’re
saying when you’re going on about food hubs and distribution corridors and creating wealth that sticks as a means of moving people and places out of poverty begins to sound a bit like Charley Brown’s teacher?”

“Last December ASD received a USDA Farm to School grant which we hoped would do two things: increase the amount of

“It is so great when you discover a need and are actually able to do
something about it fairly quickly! This past May ASD had just such an opportunity. In the fall of 2014 we learned that folks in the Deep South were struggling with obtaining USDA GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) food safety certification. ASD has been successfully teaching and facilitating the certification process for Appalachian Harvest farmers for years so we decided we simply had to do something to help.”
