It is possible to grow a great deal of food in a small space with proper variety selection and management. There will also be cold hardy varieties planted in the fall. The goal of this project is 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.
