Dig In! partners with groups in Yancey County and the Appalachian region to build diverse and collaborative relationships.

These partnerships increase our effectiveness and capacity to grow and distribute food, as well as to teach and learn in the garden. Our collaborations are key to nurturing a resilient and ample local food system that is fair and just. Working with others broadens our outreach into the community and strengthens our organization.
