Appalachian Sustainable Development’s “Ask an Agroforester” Webinar Series is an opportunity for us to come together for a deep dive into detailed information about specific Agroforestry topics. Bring your questions for our regional Agroforestry heroes!
All webinars are from 7PM – 8:30PM EST
Since 1995, Appalachian Sustainable Development (ASD) has been working to propel our mission to build a thriving regional food and agriculture system that creates healthy communities, respects the planet, and cultivates profitable opportunities for Appalachians.
In the beginning ASD focused exclusively on 15 counties in northeast TN and southwest VA. Today our work has expanded to include partners in WV, eastern KY and southeast OH.
