I have created this story map to serve as a platform to explore the interconnection between farming practices and community well-being, highlighting key management decisions intentionally made by farmers to achieve sustainable outcomes. Using interviews with agricultural stakeholders from various regions in the U.S., I have gathered valuable insights into the practices and approaches embraced by farmers to positively impact their communities. The story map presents preliminary findings from these interviews, offering a glimpse into the potential benefits of the agriculture-community relationship on farm profitability and the overall well-being of agricultural communities.
