Radically Rural Gears up for 2019 Summit

KEENE, N.H. — Radically Rural, a two-day Keene-based summit held for the first time in 2018 — and was host to 544 professionals from 21 states — will be held this year on September 19 and 20, 2019. In addition to its original roster of five tracks — Arts & Culture, Journalism, Entrepreneurship, Main Street and Working Lands — the summit will include a sixth track, Renewable Energy.
