Cross-Currents: Art + Agriculture summary

In Sept., a group of us got together in Greensboro, NC for Cross-Currents: Art + Agriculture Powering Rural Economies to explore new strategic intersections, develop innovative strategies for well-being, and initiate unimagined partnerships to benefit rural communities.

Here is a summary of what we did and learned together. This includes slides, handouts, resource lists, and organizations and sponsors who are daily making a difference for all of us.
