AppHarvest is working with Appalachia to build the Farming Now movement.

AppHarvest is building some of America's largest greenhouses, combining conventional agriculture techniques with today’s technology to grow non-GMO, chemical-free produce. By choosing to farm this way, we are able to reduce water usage by 80%. Our farms are located in Central Appalachia, a region within a day’s drive of 70% of the US population. This allows us to reduce the amount of fuel consumed in transportation by 75%. And because of saved time and resources, we are able to maintain competitive pricing.


Bullhorn is a branding agency. We help organizations communicate more clearly with language and design. We sponsored TEDxCorbin because we think big things happen when people get together to discuss important issues. Connections are made. People disagree, are challenged. That is healthy and important. To address the complex issues facing our region we need to hear divergent viewpoints. We must hear these differing perspectives and work together on solutions.

Teach For America Appalachia is an organization working to disrupt educational inequity in Eastern Kentucky.
