Sustainability Matters encourages individuals and organizations to work together for sustainability-oriented education and community building. Themes include sustainable gardening, nature conservation, environmental awareness and animal welfare.
Since its beginnings as a casual brainstorming forum in January 2018, Sustainability Matters has organized more than 50 events in 5 counties in the Northern Shenandoah Valley. They offer workshops and plant swaps and participate in community events throughout the area.
The Community Foundation of the Northern Shenandoah Valley serves as a fiscal sponsor for Sustainability Matters. Sustainability Matters will operate under CFNSV as they work toward becoming a stand-alone 501(c)(3) organization.
