We address mining-impacted landscapes with innovation and creativity.
Reclaim Appalachia sees the post-mining landscapes of Appalachia as assets rather than liabilities. The rocky, compacted spoil left after mountaintop mining can be converted into a loose sandy loam soil with the right preparation techniques. Water and cool air from old underground mines can be utilized for aquaculture and geothermal heating/cooling. Solar energy, rotational grazing, and agroforestry orchards are all possible on landscapes that are currently forgotten or underutilized.
We measure success according to the triple bottom line.
