Making it work in The Valley Beautiful of Unicoi County, Tennessee

Continuing its five-year commitment to Unicoi County, East Tennessee State University's 2010 Appalachian Teaching Project class documented sustainable agriculture and agricultural heritage in the county. The central focus of the project was to keep a record of Unicoi County residents engaged in sustainable agriculture or living on family farms, so that the county can use that information in sustainable economic development initiatives. The project goals are to promote sustainable agriculture and to preserve Unicois farming heritage. By bolstering sustainable agriculture, Unicoi County will increase job opportunities and per capita income and be better prepared to compete in the global economy. This project is also connected to Unicois proposed Tanasi arts and heritage center, which will include a farmers market and local foods restaurant.
