Foxfire: 5 Decades Of Preserving Appalachian Wisdom



Foxfire: 5 Decades Of Preserving Appalachian Wisdom

Off-gridders are quite diverse, but one thing they all have in common is the desire to preserve wisdom and knowledge from past – that is, how to do things our great-grandparents did.
That’s what the Foxfire Fund has been doing since 1966 by preserving the wisdom of the people of Appalachia.
On this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio we speak with T.J. Smith, executive director of the Foxfire Fund, which just celebrated its 50thanniversary and has a new book – “The Foxfire Book of Simple Living.”
T.J. tells us:
  • How the Foxfire Fund got started.
  • Why he believes Foxfire has remained so popular for 50 years.
  • How the Appalachian way of life is thriving, despite new technologies.
  • Why people today are still attracted to Appalachian life.
Finally, T.J. tells us what people can expect from Foxfire in the future. If you’ve ever been a fan of the Foxfire book series, then you don’t want to miss this week’s show!
