Rising Appalachia

Our Mission

Through education, demonstration, and community exchange, Rising Appalachia supports a regional culture based on sustainable natural resources providing for economic activity, collective needs, and individual health and enjoyment.

What We Do

Rising Appalachia became a 501(c)(3) non profit in 2016 with the purpose of providing community services and events for Athens and surrounding counties. It currently operates a summer camp and hosts festivals, events, and workshops with a focus on the environment and sustainability.

Rising Appalachia has grown significantly since its incorporation. It is looking forward to some exciting opportunities in the next year which include, but are not limited to:

  • Extending summer camp offerings from 6 to 9 weeks
  • Adult summer camp days
  • Expeditions and overnights
  • Permaculture workshops
  • Weekend events for kids to give parents a break
