Mission & Work

SustainFloyd works to leverage and preserve Floyd County’s existing assets and traditional strengths in agriculture and craftsmanship to help build a resilient rural local economy.

Supporting the growth of our community’s next generation requires a community commitment, which is why we work closely with local and state governments and agencies, local businesses, like-minded non-profits and local citizens. Together we can find ways to develop the financial and ecological health of our community for the well-being of all citizens of Floyd County. But we also join with other communities throughout the region and around the globe to model new ways of living on, working in, and caring for the world around us.

Our project areas focus on efforts to:

  • Localize our economy
  • Enhance and protect natural and cultural resources
  • Advance issues related to strengthen food systems, energy independence, transportation, waste and recycling, and education
