A website for dreamers and doers.

Welcome to Try This NC! This website showcases dozens of healthy living programs, initiatives, and ideas from around the state of North Carolina. From the mountains to the coast, Try This NC includes successful projects that community organizations, churches, schools, and individuals have tried and tested to improve health. 

This website is based on Try This West Virginia, a site that uplifts multitudes of rural projects in West Virginia that promote community health.  Creators of the site believe do-able, practical ideas focused on rural communities can help us turn our dreams of healthier communities into reality, and so do we!

Take a virtual trip across the state to be inspired, get ideas, and learn from communities just like yours.  If you have a rural success story to share, please contact us – we may share your story!



See how other groups have implemented their projects successfully!
