The Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards of southwest Virginia is offering a series of workshops on a variety of topics this fall and winter. This coming Saturday, the topic is sustainable forestry – a vital sector for central Appalachia. We are one of the most richly forested regions in the US, and also one of the most biodiverse regions in the world, so it is critical that we manage our forests for both the economy and the environment. The three workshops will focus on root digging, sustainable forestry opportunities in the region (led by yours truly), and asset based community development. Don't miss it!
