The organization, Renewing the Countryside, is getting started on a youth-focused Renewing the Countryside book. The book will showcase young people (roughly defined as age 30 and younger) who are “renewing the countryside” through youth programs, sustainable farming, farm to school projects, businesses, and so on. The idea behind the book is to highlight some of the great work that young people in rural areas are doing that may otherwise go unseen, to both inspire other young and old alike, as well as to offer ideas about successful programs and projects. If you have any suggestions of young people in rural areas that might be interested in being involved in this, please email Beth Munnich, firstname.lastname@example.org.
