Calling all photographers and local food enthusiasts!

ASAP produces an annual calendar showcasing the seasonality of local food and farms in our Southern Appalachian Mountains. This year, we want to feature how members of our local food community engage with Appalachian Grown™ food throughout the year. This year’s calendar theme is called “Share Your Experience,” and will feature YOUR photos of local food seasonality in our region. Twelve winning photos will be printed in our 2018 calendar, and spotlighted in social media.
