Our Donut logo for Vandalia Donut Co about to hit the streets in this family-run, handmade Donut-making 1970s restored camper with deep Appalachian roots because DREAMS DO COME TRUE! Cherry on top: our favorite sign-painter @payleigh could be the lady to bring this to life. Donuts in donuts y'all. AND, we learned so much about local farm ingredients and Appalachian ag history on this project from this really special and thoughtful family. #lookingatappalachia #appalachianmade #supportsmallbusinessamerica #donuts ❀️❀️ πŸ©πŸ©πŸ“·by @payleigh !

Appalachian Headwaters, one of our newest projects, featured by the @nytimes for their good work in #WV 🐝🌳🌎 - "In Hinton, West Virginia, a nonprofit called Appalachian Headwaters is converting a 1940s summer camp into an apiary. Their aim: to help displaced coal workers and military veterans get into the #honey business. The area is β€œbee paradise,” says Deborah Delaney, who oversees the #apiary and bee program at @udelaware. It’s largely forest, unsullied by the pesticides that threaten the insects in industrial farm areas, and it has plant species like black locust and sourwood whose honey can fetch a high price. Deborah and the nonprofit’s staff are currently working to get the colony established on a hillside behind electrified wire fencing to protect them from bears. Next spring, they plan to distribute about 150 hives to 35 beekeepers, either free or through a low- or no-interest loan. Come harvest time, the #beekeepers would bring their honey-laden frames to the camp for extraction and processing; organizers would pay them for their yield and then sell the honey to support the program. @george_etheredge photographed these #🐝s from the apiary in Hinton, West Virginia. Visit the link in our profile to read more about alternative-energy jobs in coal country."

This summer New Story took matters into its own hands and invited people who are behind innovative and extraordinary things happening across the state, to come together for a festival of workshops, DIY placemaking, communication, tech, entrepreneurship, organizing, and dreaming. We were part of this conversation, to talk about how we're creating, making, and doing in Elk City WV. // We're stoked to have Megan Bullock join the New Story Conference 2018 team with @thewvhub to dream up next years gathering of minds and ideas around Appalachia ! 😁 Keep your πŸ‘€open for big things happening πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’« #makers #dreamers #builders
