Raised beds, garden boxes, harvesting juneberries


Indigenous people have practiced design for all time. Following the natural cycles our people encouraged land fertility through their lifestyles, practices and culture. Deepening the understanding of how ecosystems function. Hand-on activities include container gardening, and seasonal foraging.

This is one of a number of workshops in food sovereignty, delivered by Mní Wičhóni Nakíčižiŋ Wóuŋspe with the financial support of Standing Rock Language and Culture Institute.
