Finally, this local “social-benefit organization” (a more apt and positive description than “non-profit” emphasis on the negative) is ready to bring more of Floyd County’s and southwest Virginia’s and the Earth’s good people on board to participate with the localization of our economy, for the good of all.
Be one of the first. Here’s the garden-fresh announcement, with a link to join by PayPal or credit card.
A member discussion forum is soon to be available, as well as a news and information blog from the SustainFloyd web site. If you have ever been curious about what SustainFloyd is all about, there is not much you won’t know if you give the web site a thorough look.
I have just completed my first three-year tenure on the board of SustainFloyd. It has been amazing and encouraging to see what a small group of dedicated folks can bring to a tiny but actively-engaged and forward-thinking community with perseverance, commitment and unflagging (well, infrequently flagging) energy and focus.
But we need everyone’s ideas. We need more people to engage as volunteers, donors, and advisory and board members. Now is the time to jump in. The momentum is powerful, the future of Floyd and Southwest Virginia is more hopeful because of grassroots efforts like this. Numbers matter.
