Mission Statement

Strengthening communities by creating resilient environmental, economic and social resources for current and future generations

Description

Since 2005, Sustainable Sandhills has served the Sandhills region of central and southeastern North Carolina. The organization now has a nine county reach area, where we strengthen communities by creating resilient environmental, economic and social resources for current and future generations. We work in eight impact areas: energy resiliency, air quality, water quality, waste management, public health, land and wildlife conservation, local agriculture and sustainable infrastructure.

Our current programs are focusing on air quality for the Fayetteville Area Metropolitan Planning Region; heat and wildfire smoke vulnerability; hazard mitigation; litter/illegal dumping abatement; recycling; PFAS and GenX and other emerging chemicals; Go Green Initiative in Cumberland County Schools; Green Business Program; Made from Scratch Program (teaching "urban homesteading" skills that can be translated into small businesses); community gardens; and a local farmers market that connects small farms and cottage industries with a customer base.
