Prairie Idea Exchange: Connecting ag and community

Prairie Idea Exchange: Connecting ag and community

The topic for our June Prairie Idea Exchange gathering was building connections between agriculture and our communities.

We grounded the conversation in two basic ideas: First, our Dakota communities exist because of agriculture. The nature of the relationship has changed as agriculture has changed, but it is still strong. Second, whatever other disagreements we may have, those of us who live in the Dakotas want our rural communities to survive and thrive.

The conversation aimed to describe what’s happening with this relationship between agriculture and communities, as well as to imagine how ag and communities could each make the other better.

What follows are the stories that resulted from that conversation. Read. Consider. Then join in the conversation at
www.pie4.us. Ideas from that online forum will appear in the September/October issue.
