Sustainable Communities Network

Lexington, Kentucky

We are a community-based non-profit that supports the theory and practice of sustainable living. It is our view that a local and sustainable food system is the foundation of a sustainable community. So we work collaboratively at supporting local farmers, CSAs, farmers markets, farm to school, community gardening, and other local food projects. Each year we organize a local food summit and a community garden tour.

Our work also includes serving on the local climate action plan team, the board of our local Good Foods Co-op, the Environmental Commission, Slow Food USA, Terra Madre delegate, Growing Food and Justice Initiative and Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group and other organizational connections.

We conduct workshops and give presentations locally and around the country. We endeavor to:

* EDUCATE the broadest range of community members about the environmental issues facing our world and the benefits of making sustainable choices * BUILD a critical mass of community members that unites our individual concerns into collective action. * CREATE a network that encourages and supports the work of creating sustainable communities * INSPIRE environmental stewardship, personal responsibility, leadership, systems thinking & cooperation. * EMPOWER our communities to become part of the sustainability movement
