Season 21, Episode 1: Crossing the Urban-Rural Divide

Video duration: 25:26Video has closed captioning.

In 2005, just as it seemed Oregon's urban-rural divide had grown into an unbridgeable chasm, a handful of ranchers from rural Grant county did the unexpected. They invited kids from Portland's Sunnyside Environmental school to live and work along side them and see their side of life. The Urban-Rural exchange has continued every year since.
