2019 will be our first growing season in the Kinship Garden, a communal space where community members can grow together. Those who participate will be able to share in the harvest.
If you are interested in being a part of the Kinship garden, join us at the groundbreaking and planting!
The garden is located on the hilltop south of the Health Clinic. Light refreshments will be served, then we will plant the garden. For questions, call Meskwaki Agriculture and Food Sovereignty (641) 484-3511.
