Sweet Spring Sustainable Living Forum and Craft Fair

Focus to be on community cohesion and resilience in the Virginias 

The Second Annual Sustainable Living Forum & Craft Fair is scheduled for Aug. 16 – 18, 2019 at the Sweet Springs Resort Park here.

It is free and open to the public.

Topics covered will be protecting our water; transitioning to alternative energies from fossil fuels; learning about the market potential of hemp; herbal gardening and cultivating (for) personal and community health; spiritual and meditative opportunities to relieve solastalgia (climate change anxiety); regional geological characteristics; and, more.

It is being presented by Sweet Springs Institute and the Appalachian Chronicle.

The objective is to acknowledge that individuals must take steps in their own lives to reduce their ecological footprint and learn to sustain ourselves from what water, the earth and sun have to offer us; and, work together to achieve sustainable, safe and secure communities, capable of supporting even the most vulnerable. This will be accomplished only through reciprocity and cooperation. Consequently, an objective of this gathering is to introduce the concept of The Sustainable Corridor Initiative.
