Each year Rural Action honors people, businesses, and organizations that teach us how to live and work in greater harmony with Earth and with each other. During our annual meeting, we recognize individuals, businesses, and organizations that: create new models for living with respect to the earth and its systems that others can follow; have a generous spirit and willingly share knowledge, experiences, and personal resources with others; and leave the world a better place because of their personal and professional behavior. This year, we are honoring five recipients and are pleased to share their stories with you through the videos below.
