It's not too late to sign up for tomorrow's Growing Appalachia conference being held at Jenny Wiley State Park in Prestonsburg, KY! The conference offers workshops full of practical information on energy efficiency, small-scale farming and renewable energy. Earlier this week, Appalshop's Mountain Talk program interviewed several of the conference's workshop presenters. Here's the description:
In this edition of WMMT’s Mountain Talk, we discuss small-scale farming, energy efficiency, and renewables in the mountains with special guests Fern Nafziger, Cody Montgomery, Paul Wiediger and Will Bowling. All of our guests are deeply involved in this work in eastern Kentucky, and are all presenters at this weekend’s fourth annual Growing Appalachia day of free workshops to develop skills around all the above-mentioned topics (do-it-yourself energy efficiency, food preservation, small-scale mountain farming) and more. The event takes place at the Jenny Wiley Convention Center in Floyd County, Ky., and begins at 9 a.m.
