UtahLinks! Rural Matters
The spirit of Rural Utah is an independent spirit. The Rural Utah spirit:
- does not look to government for help or solutions
- is not beguiled by "experts" who suppose they know all the answers
- solves problems using local resources
- knows the value of work and knows what work is valuable
It will eventually take rural ingenuity to solve national problems or they simply won't get solved.
The good life in rural communities is created by individuals, families and neighbors within the community who solve their own problems and build their own solutions.
That is a lifestyle that is worth celebrating.
"A community economy is not an economy in which well-placed persons can make a 'killing'. It is an economy whose aim is generosity and a well-distributed and safeguarded abundance."
- Wendell Berry -
