Resourceful Communities

Try This NC is supported by Resourceful Communities, a specialized program of The Conservation Fund that uplifts a network of community groups, faith-based organizations, small towns, and resource providers. Our community partners across the state are promoting rural health with limited resources but unlimited ingenuity.  This website highlights rural community projects direct from the people doing the work, and we hope it inspires you to give these ideas a try!
