Students at Evergreen Community Charter School in Asheville, NC have begun their Appalachian Journey once again, marking the 3rd year of this exciting learning initiative. This year students will expand their scope beyond foodways to also study how music, literature, energy and transportation have developed in Appalachia and influenced the lives of people who live
Students from Mars Hill University enrolled in an Appalachian Oral History course will collect stories about foodways in the Western North Carolina region. They will share their experiences, interviews, and analyses as Storybank collaborators on this site. Stay tuned!
Evergreen Community Charter School in Asheville started a new program called Appalachian Journeys in 2014.
