Nurturing The Network

 Resourceful Communities actively provides opportunities for our rural grassroots partners to connect with each other and benefit from an engaged network.  

Nurturing this network reduces the isolation many rural community leaders experience; allows for cross-pollination of ideas and responses to challenges; connects people across race, age, economic status and geography; and helps Resourceful Communities build a movement that advocates for the triple bottom line.

We nurture our network by:
 Grassroots Convening Area Wide Health Committee  
Grassroots Convenings

Our annual gathering is a place where grassroots partners network, learn more about issues that affect their communities, build skills and connect with resources. Learn more.
