Why A Distributed Model in Wyoming?

Jan 15, 2009

I get a lot of questions about the operation that the WMRC runs in Wyoming, and one of the comments is often "why do you have centralized services?". I discussed this in an earlier post, but something I read today gave me an even clearer visualization. Wyoming has 23 counties. Three of those counties are larger in area than the entire state of Massachusetts. Unlike Massachusetts, we only have 510,000 or so people.

 

Folks who come here just don't understand the miles and miles of ....miles and miles that we have in Wyoming. Face to face is just not a viable option for the type of service we offer, so we've had to adapt to the realities of the western rural landscape.



Have you had any experience with Economic Gardening?  How does it compare to our Wyoming approach?
