“Brain drain” is the scourge of communities that watch their young people grow up, leave town and never return. Harvest Public Media’s Amy Mayer reports that when small towns take an honest look at what they do best and what they really need, some can achieve what they’re calling “brain gain.” 

Harvest Public Media is a reporting collaboration focused on agricultural and rural issues throughout the Midwest.
