Rural at Heart: Celebrating the City-Country Connection (Winter 2016)
Catholic Rural Life has sought to strengthen the bonds between urban and rural communities since our founding more than 90 years ago. In this issue, we celebrate the urban-rural connections through various stories of those who remain “rural at heart” even after one or two generations removed from their rural roots. We also take a look at those who share an affinity for the agrarian lifestyle because of their concern for healthy foods and a healthy planet. Still, we remain concerned that urbanization and industrialization can disrupt our rural foundations. Through our programs and mission, CRL works for greater solidarity between urban and rural life.
