SustainFloyd has received a tremendous response for its “pocket farm” workshop set for this Saturday, Jan. 19.

In fact, we’ve has so many people express interest in attending that we’ve outstripped the capacity at the June Bug Center. Instead of turning people away at the door, we’ve instead moved Saturday’s workshop to The Conference Hall at the Floyd EcoVillage, which has more space.

The EcoVillage is 2.3 miles from the stoplight in Floyd, off of
Franklin Pike, and 2.5 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway between mileposts
159 & 160.

Its address is 718 Franklin Pike Floyd, Virginia 24091.

*Directions from the stoplight in Floyd to the Floyd EcoVillage*:

*1.* Head *east* on *US-221 N/E Main St* toward *Wilson St SE. *Continue to
follow US-221 N. *(1.1 miles)
**2.* Slight right onto *Franklin Pike SE/State Route 681. **(1.2 miles)
**3.* Right turn onto *Eco Village Trail*.

*Directions from the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Floyd EcoVillage*:

*1.* Exit the Parkway onto *Shooting Creek Rd/State Route 860*. *(1.2 miles)
**2.* *Turn left* onto *Franklin Pike SE/State Route 681*. *(1.2 miles)
**3*. *Left turn* onto *Eco Village Trail*.

We’ll have someone at June Bug with directions for those who didn’t get the news.
