Blue Ridge Virtual Eco Fair
November 14-15, 2020
As we struggle under the weight of current events: Covid-19, an unsteady economy, dramatic weather events and the reignited fight for racial equality, we think it vitally important to continue to draw attention to the overarching threats of climate change and environmental degradation which are clearly woven through all these issues. It is a time to share information about life styles and activities that can both help support the environment and increase personal well-being.
Featuring keynote speakers Patrick Holden, CBE and Zach Bush, MD.
Mission & Work
SustainFloyd is a rural nonprofit in the Blue Ridge Mountains that undertakes projects to support the environment, agriculture, renewable energy and community well being. .
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
