For over 20 years, Rural Resources has found innovative ways to meet critical community needs for economic opportunity, access to nutritious foods, and the preservation of our heritage and ecosystem through the use of local food. During that time, we have empowered hundreds of school-children, at-risk teens, families, and other community members to provide for themselves.

Our work is rewarding and meaningful, but it has never been easy! It became even more challenging in 2009 when our primary facility burned to the ground. We never let this setback stop us, and we have continued to grow and thrive since then.

The time has finally come that we truly need a facility that can be a central hub for the education and innovation at the core of our mission. The Farm & Food Learning Center will be a welcoming inside space that will allow at-risk teens, Farm Day Camp participants, school children, and many others anxious to learn about farms and food through growing, cooking, marketing, and eating it!

Through generous community support along with grants from the Appalachian Regional Commission, USDA Rural Development, and the East Tennessee Foundation, we are well on our way to constructing this desperately needed facility. We are excited to begin the next phase of this project--getting the equipment, furnishings, and other materials that will make this building a "home" for all lovers of local food and community development. You can help Rural Resources achieve this mission by naming a part of the building and grounds after yourself or a loved one.
