This case study is from a collection of four case studies of wealth creation and rural-urban linkages (Dabson, Jensen et al, 2012). These are part of a broader effort supported by the Ford Foundation, known as the Wealth Creation in Rural Communities initiative. The primary purpose of these case studies is to stimulate learning, discussion and further inquiry about the application of the rural wealth creation framework. The cases were selected to illustrate different facets of this framework in action, and to further clarify the ways in which the framework could prove to be instrumental in achieving sustainable economic prosperity for rural people and places. The subjects of each of these cases represent decades of dedication and hard work by many people and organizations often in extremely challenging economic, social, and political contexts.
