Rural Resources is now serving as the Lending Library for the East Tennessee Lexicon of Sustainblity. AmeriCorps member Kayla Carter, who serves as the Communications Coordinator, is the curator for the pop-up art show. If your organization would like to host the art show, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are 20 informational artworks that aim to educate the community about terminology often heard in and around the local food movement in the region. Easels were built by volunteers and made out of tobacco sticks as a tribute to our state's heritage.
Upcoming events are at ETSU's Farmers Market, Johnson City's Farmers Market Pavilion Grand Opening, Jonesborough's Farmers Market and Fox Park Fair Farmers Market. We have already worked with the Appalachian Resource Conservation and Development Council, Build It Up East Tennessee and ETSU's Sustainability Department.
Keep up with the Lexicon on Facebook!
Also, email Kayla to sign up to receive email updates about local food events at which the Lexicon will be set up!
