what is the ruralist?
A COLLABORATION PROJECT CREATED BY
RURAL GONE URBAN + RURAL REVIVAL
Every day, we meet people who are doing amazing things in and for rural communities, and we know we’ve just scratched the surface. It's our goal that by recognizing and celebrating hard-working Ruralists for their ceaseless and resilient impact in their communities, we can inspire others to begin sharing their stories and becoming their own catalyst for change.
Welcome to The Ruralist.
We’re showcasing top-shelf representatives of rural living.
Regardless of timezone, zip code, or area code, dreamers and doers are evoking positive change in their rural communities.
Through relationships, businesses, social media, and Rolodexes - and, yes, even their location - rural influencers are making a tremendous impact - an impact that is not limited to their city limit sign. From health and wellness to policy, and from small businesses to global ventures, the Ruralist is comprised of true change makers who, honestly, would be embarrassed to make the list. (Their grandparents, though, will absolutely press print and hang it on the refrigerator.)
