ASD’s mission is to build a thriving regional food and agriculture system that creates healthy communities, respects the planet, and cultivates profitable opportunities for Appalachians.

There are many ways to get involved with Appalachian Sustainable Development.


We always need volunteers to help in a variety of ways. You decide when you want to help out, doing what tasks and for how long!


Set up modest monthly giving, support your favorite program with an annual gift, or make a legacy gift to ASD. You can even give real estate, collections, and assets of value. All gifts are needed and appreciated and help us propel our mission. 100% of your support is tax-deductible.

Take a Class or Workshop

Whether in person or virtually, you can expand your knowledge and build skills with ASD’s experienced staff and industry partner professionals.
