One of the original goals of our farm was to provide education -- I had thought about having a bison workshop here, but it wasn't until the relationship with Rural Action that I was able to make that happen. By working with Rural Action and using their network, advertising, and scheduling, it was really easy for me to have that workshop here.

We live in a vibrant community. We are not without our issues, and I worry about what we are leaving for future generations. I am grateful for the vast work Rural Action does addressing these issues -- improving our economy, ecology, and education.

One of the keys to building a sustainable society is reconnection - to the land, the forest, the water. Once we change our relationship to these resources, we will be able to change the actions we take on this planet. Rural Action is fighting for this change in Appalachia and NAPRA is fighting for it in Brazil.
