Renewing the Countryside - Green Routes
Renewing the Countryside strengthens rural areas by championing and supporting rural communities, farmers, artists, entrepreneurs, educators, activists and other people who are renewing the countryside through sustainable and innovative initiatives, businesses, and projects. By sharing stories of rural renewal, Renewing the Countryside builds awareness and support for sustainable endeavors, connects people interested in sustainable rural development to each other, provides practical assistance and networking opportunities for those working to improve rural America, and fosters connections between urban and rural people. Where culture, cuisine and conservation come together, Renewing the Countryside's GREEN ROUTES program is an easy-to-use website-based tool to help "green travelers" find one-of-a-kind places to eat, play, shop, sleep, and learn in Minnesota (eventually throughout the U.S.).
