Rural Resources Records, 1969-2000 (bulk 1975-1981)

Scope and Contents

The Rural Resources records are arranged in two series, largely as they were received from the donor.

The first series, ORGANIZATIONAL FILES, includes founding documents, administrative files related to programs and conferences which Rural Resources organized or participated in, efforts to establish a Small Farm Training Center, and correspondence. Some notes related to the correspondence are included in the finding aid; further notes can be found in the case file. Two documents relating to the history of the organization which were prepared by the donor are included in the front of Box 3.

The second series, SUBJECT FILES, includes organizations or programs with which Rural Resources was closely aligned, and subjects of concern or interest such as alternative energy, challenges faced by family farms, other farming training programs, rural development, and relationships with faith-based organizations.
