Pine Mountain Settlement School is honored to be partnering with Grow Appalachia for the twelfth consecutive year, and we are so excited for yet another opportunity to engage our neighbors in such a meaningful way. The work of creating a more sustainable and secure food system here in our region is perhaps more important than ever before. 

Getting to experience all four seasons is one of the many wonderful things about living in Central Appalachia. However, there is something special about spring in the mountains, after all, with the abundance of new life and opportunity surrounding us it’s hard not to feel optimistic. With the wild winter we’ve had, and the beautiful spring shaping up, the seasonal change has been very dramatic this year. Just a month ago we had frigid temperatures and over six inches of snow on the ground, and here we are today with crocus and daffodil in full bloom, a busy schedule of plowing ahead, and plenty of seeds on hand to distribute to our Grow Appalachia families.

We are hopeful that you too are ready for a wonderful spring season, and that we all have the best gardening year ever!
