SustainFloyd Unveils Revised Web Site

Take me home, country roads

The non-profit organization, SustainFloyd, is still becoming what it will eventually be in its efforts to support all aspects of healthy resource use while promoting opportunities for sustainable jobs, vibrant community and resilient local economies across the county.

The revamped web site is now live, but not yet in final form. The content today, while relevant, is mostly less focused place-holder topical items that relate somehow to the environment. Look for the site to contain more hyper-local content relevant to resource issues and resources from Floyd County.

As some of you know, SF now has a full-time director, Mike Burton, who will be contributing regularly to the web site and interacting with organizations and citizens in the town and county of Floyd in the coming months.

For the time being, we will continue to use the page as a complementary tool for conversation, shared images and such. Please feel free to “join” that site.

And find the contact information at the bottom of web site to request more information or to contact SF by way of Mike Burton, Director.
