Through our Community Development, we have the potential to make a real and positive change in the community. This is one of our key areas of focus here at Appalachia Mountain Flows, and a source of much success for our Non-Profit Organization. Get in touch with us today and see how you can lend a helping hand with this program.
Appalachia Mountain Flows' Riverbend Center demonstration house and garden is being created and maintained in a practical sustainable way that any person in the community could duplicate.
The Riverbend Center will be used as sustainable demonstration house for the community to implement ideas into their own homes. It will include rain water cisterns, filters, low flow toilets and showerheads, energy efficient windows and appliances.
Appalachia Mountain Flows Corp. will begin operation in McDowell County, West Virginia and then expand to include other counties in the future.
Education & Outreach
Appalachia Mountain Flows Corp. will provide access to a model of sustainable living and water purification in a setting that the residents of the Appalachia region can view techniques to implement in their homes. Residents will have access to resources such as sustainability, rainwater collection, water filters, cisterns, nutrition, green building and energy. There will also be educational seminars, materials, hands on events and assistance with resources including water distribution to the residents of this region.
In addition residents will be provided resources for drinking water test kits to empower them to make necessary changes to their home and educate them on filters that are available. Appalachia Mountain Flows Corp. will support residents of the region in raising awareness and promoting self-advocacy to make positive changes in their communities.
Appalachia Mountain Flows will create our own STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education program for students across the Appalachia. The Riverbend Center will provide opportunities for students to learn the importance of implementing sustainable options into homes.
The students will be able to learn hands on through our interactive STEM program about sustainability, clean water, and growing food.
