In 2020, ASD will celebrate our 25th Anniversary and we wouldn’t be here without so many stakeholders, collaborators, donors, volunteers and corporate and business partners. Our partners over the years have helped us strengthen Central Appalachia and change the lives of the countless families we serve!
To celebrate, we aim to raise $25,000 to further fund our programs in sustainable agriculture and food access. Our efforts would go even farther with the support from anniversary corporate sponsors. In this role, businesses/companies provide a special, one-time, anniversary gift of financial support. In turn, we will promote them throughout the entire year!
With ASD anniversary corporate sponsors by our side, we’re sure to achieve this special fundraising goal and continue our important work in Central Appalachia.
Celebrating 25 Years
of Living Better. Locally.

ASD’s mission is 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.
ASD’s goal is to collaborate with a variety of partners to significantly expand the impacts to rural economic development by leveraging the intersections between agriculture, economic development, community building and health.

Why the Need for ASD?
Given ASD’s leading role in the rural food system in Central Appalachia, we have been able to expand our work and have greater impact through larger projects. Through our experience and relationships, we maintain critical connections to partners who value our impacts and work with us to propel stronger local food cultures, public health and economic development.
What is ASDs Vision for the Future?
► Collaborative partnerships with a variety of partners that significantly expand the impacts to rural economic development.
► Leveraging the intersections between agriculture, economic development, community building and health
► Multi-layer strategy to build rural food systems at the local level while bringing urban dollars back to rural areas by providing farmers with increased access to large markets.
► Promoting self-reliance using home and community gardens as a means of improving health outcomes while also providing the opportunity to generate income, increase social capital and build community partnerships.
