Wolf’s Native Garden Project

Summary

Reconnecting Native Americans to the land and to native diets is an important step in restoring health, pride, and self reliance. The objective of this project is to encourage Indian people to start gardens using native crop varieties. The project coordinator will establish gardens with Native American crops and help local colleges, Extension offices, radio stations, and community groups to conduct field trips to educate Native Americans on the value of indigenous crops. The project was delayed due to weather-related problems and was extended for one year.
