Riassunto: Through engaging stories, Renewing the Countryside?Wisconsin explores how the state is leading the nation in sustainably grown food, environmentally responsible businesses, and home-grown, forward-looking answers to today?s rural economy.
Seven chapters cover stories ranging from arts and culture, farming, green business, conservation, tourism, community development, and learning. Learn about how the city of Washburn on Chequamegon Bay has become the country?s first eco-municipality, how Growing Power is connecting urban Milwaukee kids to fresh food and the countryside, and how innovative farmers and artisan food makers are bringing sustainably and organically grown products to consumers throughout the state.
This book will spur imaginations, give hope, and foster dialogue. It is a must-read for all who take pleasure in Wisconsin?s countryside and want to see it sustained for future generations.
