Garden County Visioning Retreat
Grow Garden County organizers also invite all county residents to help define a county vision statement to guide county development activities. Other topics to be discussed include Engaging Youth and Entrepreneurship Education, Connecting with and Recruiting Young Adults, Developing and Transitioning Small Businesses, and Increasing Charitable Giving to Sustain Garden County Activities.
Several grants are funding this planning process. Grow Garden County has received five grants for town meetings and follow up activities. The Center for Rural Affairs involvement is funded by the Nebraska based Grassland Foundation and the World Wildlife Fund Northern Great Plains program to work with landowners to develop ecotourism businesses.
