What could become of our idle and vacant farm yards?

On your drives through the North Dakota countryside, have you noticed the many vacant and idle farmsteads? They are relics of a past age when the prairie was alive with people and activity.

But the nature of farming changed, the farms followed suit, and the cascade effect of outward migration and rural decline was on. But is there a way to bring some aspect of these past days back to life? Those are the questions Megan Laudenschlager with Strengthen ND has been asking, and a plan is beginning to emerge. Check out the conversation below to get up to speed on one plan to bring rural North Dakota back to life.
