AppFellows Regional Gathering : “Strengthening Local Food Systems in Appalachia”
Regional Gatherings bring the work of the Appalachian Transition Fellowship to a wider participant base, providing a space for folks throughout the region to convene and join fellows and host communities in sharing their work, learning from each other, and working together to identify opportunities to connect and advance our collective efforts throughout Appalachia. Join the AppFellows, host communities like Appalachian Sustainable Development and Community Farm Alliance, and folks working in food systems across sectors throughout Appalachia to share and learn what’s happening throughout the region, and connect and strategize to advance the work as we move forward together.
