Description:
SustainFloyd presents the 2021 Blue Ridge Virtual Eco Fair online on Sunday, April 25, 2021.

Floyd and our surrounding communities in the Blue Ridge Mountains are known for their independence and creativity. As we face huge environmental issues, what can individuals and small communities do? How do we make choices that matter?

Hear stories from the front line: farmers, small business owners, TINY householders, gardeners, alternative energy and transport advocates, local environmental activists and more. Let keynote speaker Zach Bush, MD inspire you to ‘thrive within nature’ as we gather together to explore the topic of a sustainable future.

The Blue Ridge Eco Fair is brought to you by SustainFloyd.

SustainFloyd is a rural 501©3 non-profit in the Blue Ridge Mountains that undertakes projects to support the environment, agriculture, renewable energy, and community well-being. SustainFloyd works to leverage and preserve Floyd County’s existing assets and traditional strengths in agriculture and craftsmanship to help build a resilient rural local economy.

Supporting the growth of our community’s next generation requires a community commitment, which is why we work closely with local and state governments and agencies, local businesses, like-minded non-profits and local citizens. Together we can find ways to develop the financial and ecological health of our community for the well-being of all citizens of Floyd County. But we also join with other communities throughout the region and around the globe to model new ways of living on, working in, and caring for the world around us.
