At Sustainable Sandhills, we strive to increase community access to fresh, affordable food and support the small business entrepreneurs that are the cornerstones of our regional economy. Our regional farmers markets achieve our mission and provide a gathering place where farmers, artisans, crafters, and residents can #eatlocal, #drinklocal, #shoplocal, and #lovelocal.

MADE FROM SCRATCH PROGRAM

The Sustainable Sandhills MADE FROM SCRATCH Program is designed to educate local women – especially at-risk and low-income women – about developing “urban homesteading” skills such as gardening, composting, canning, sewing, knitting, beekeeping, and soap making and turning those skills into small business opportunities.

Sustainable Sandhills plans to offer a series of free-of-charge workshops on “urban homesteading” skills to participants, as well as classes on translating their newly honed talents into business opportunities. The pilot county for the program will be Moore County, North Carolina, where our partners such as the Moore County Chamber of Commerce and the Sandhills Coalition for Human Care are excited to offer this initiative to residents. Interested partners and participants may contact Kia Jones, Sustainability Programs Manager, at kia@sustainablesandhills.org or 910.484.9098.
