The Rural Living Handbook provides the district with another tool in its tool kit for educating the local citizenry on natural resource concerns and possible solutions. The document is divided into 8 sections: Getting Started, Buying Property, Water, Property Management, Agriculture, Soil, Forestry, and Getting Involved. Each section is then divided into chapters that focus on an aspect of the section. The document is 10 mb, so depending on your internet connection you can download the complete document by clicking on the image or by section located below.
