Our mission is to support projects that  nurture community growth by fostering development of knowledge, skills, and collaboration.

We, at PartneringWithAbi, have been pondering, during the last few years, how to honor the life and vision of our dear friend and family member, Abigail Dietz.


Abi's desire to advance sustainable agriculture through appropriate technology, provide opportunities for people to share skills, and increase community empowerment and resiliency  inspired us. We are currently hosting periodic Skill Shares and offering mini-grants to those who align with this vision.

In addition, we also seek to support the recovery and adjustment process of those affected by traumatic brain injury.

HomeGrown HideAways

HomeGrown HideAways provides support for our vision by donating a portion of the profits from the Airbnb they host in Abi's yurt! It was a perfect match when Abi's yurt found a new home on their property in the holler that Abi loved. Through their support we have been able to start the Mini Grant Program, funding organizations that support Partnering with Abi's Mission.
