This Working Group’s evolving function will be to foster an intentional effort to capture the story of the organization in community and the community at large. Narratives (including interviews, essays, poetry, photography and other expressive media) will explore what it means to strive for a resilient, just and sustainable state of well-being in Floyd County and Southwest Virginia.
One of the first tangible impacts of this group will be the Floyd Food Guide (as it is being called initially) for the 2017 market year. This print and digital resource may grow to include a rich exploration of Who We Are in Floyd, and evolve into the Market Guide and Almanac.
The Our Stories section of the website has some initial entries, with more coming in the months and years ahead, so that this “blog” within the website becomes a pleasant and informative vignette of SustainFloyd’s board, volunteers, members and the farmers and neighbors that make this place all that it is and all that it is becoming.
This working group will also be active in the creation, marketing and development of a soon-to-be-announced project that will make it easier to know who produces what kinds of foods or offers agriculture-related products or services within the county. More about this very soon!
