We are so excited to partner on HempX Asheville! HempX is the first festival in North Carolina with a focus on educating the public on the multiple uses and diversity of products that come from industrial hemp. All proceeds benefit Accelerating Appalachia. Join us at Highland Brewing for two days of talks, hemp foods, networking, and of course, live music and beer.

Appalachian Food Summit

On Sunday May 18th, Sara Day Evans had the opportunity to attend the inaugural at the Hindman Settlement School in Knott county Ky. The food was excellent and it was a great opportunity to connect with Appalachians in the food industry. Additionally this summit matters because it displayed Appalachian heritage to those outside the region and is an opportunity for tourism in Knott County.

 

YUM!
