      It is possible to grow a great deal of food in a small space with proper variety selection and management. We will also plant cold hardy varieties in the fall with the goal being the production of something tasty and nutritious nine months a year.

      Grow Appalachia is working to make Appalachia healthier and more food secure one season, one garden, one family at a time.
