Promoting Rural America
CommonGround — “The point of CommonGround is to foster conversations about the food we grow and eat,” said Laura Neilson, a South Dakota dairy and row-crop farmer. “We want real dialogue between women from America’s farms and women making food choices in our cities and towns.” Five states are helping to kick off the CommonGround movement by beginning a CommonGround program — Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Nebraska and South Dakota. Other farm groups are also encouraged to become involved.
