NCR-SARE Sponsors Workshop on Nurturing Gardens & People in Native American Communities

This workshop’s purpose is to assist individuals and organizations who are working to increase fruit and vegetable production in Native American communities, whether in home or common gardens or commercial endeavors.

This workshop is intended for those currently or planning to work with gardening or fruit-growing projects on reservations. Representatives of education, community development, and other non-profit organizations are also welcome to share their perspectives and learn.

Share stories, learn from each other, identify challenges, opportunities, resources, needs and priorities. Return home with helpful materials and inspiration for the coming year.

$15 per person (includes Materials & Lunch). A limited number of scholarships for registration and travel are available; contact Rhoda Burrows rhoda.burrows@sdstate.edu by Wednesday, October 6th. Sponsored, in part, by NCR-SARE's Professional Development Program in South Dakota.

For more information and registration: Rhoda Burrows (605)-394-2236 or rhoda.burrows@sdstate.edu
