The seeds for the Agri-Culture & The Future of Rural Life Project have been planted. Co-managed by Shannon Wheatley Hartman and Dennis Boyer, this project will explore agriculture as it relates to identity, tradition, community, environment, food, as well as, the economic and political future of small town America. Project discussions will take place in 2016 in Manhattan, Kansas and around the Madison, Wisconsin area. The project is also engaged in developmental discussions in central Kentucky. For more information please check out the project description page or join our Facebook group for related news articles. If you have ideas for collaboration or would like to learn more about the project, please contact Shannon ([email protected]) or Dennis ([email protected]).
