Rooted in Appalachia is a program of Appalachian Sustainable Development (ASD), a local non-profit.
Lindsey Keen lkeen@asdevelop.org, ASD’s Farmers Market Promotion Coordinator will be on-site at each event and explains, “There are a number of ways people can support Rooted in Appalachia’s
message – ‘Grown and Served Locally’. Folks can make a good faith effort to purchase locally grown foods year-round; They can grow their own food; Ask “what’s local” when shopping; Support local farmers and farmers markets; Participate in efforts to promote local foods; and Choose local beers and/or wines. Buying local is always smart. A dollar spent locally multiplies its value each time it’s spent in the local economy.”
