2019 Whipporwill Skill Share
May 18, 2019
Partnering with Abi has rewarded the organizers of Kentucky's Annual Whipporwhill Festival with a mini-grant to bring people together for a Skill Share and to support the Whippoorwill Festival. The goal of the Whippoorwill Festival is to promote sustainable living in Appalachia by sharing earth-friendly living skills with one another in a joyful, healthy, family-friendly atmosphere. 2019 will be the ninth year for the festival,
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.
