Wind River Grow Our Own 307 is a 501c3 bringing back food sovereignty through gardening on the Wind River Reservation. Our goal is to connect people to gardening, cultivate medicinal and traditional plants and share knowledge of medicinal food properties. We provide seeds, soil and garden boxes. We plant trees and medicinal plants. We provide a network for people to support each other and learn together. By building food sovereignty on the Wind River Reservation we combat food scarcity and health disparities, and promote wellness in our community.
Latest Update (March 2021)
We’ve built 150 garden boxes over the winter with volunteer effort and community donations. Now we need to distribute them and fill them with soil. Gas cards for volunteer drivers, soil and starts are our immediate needs. Help us get these garden boxes growing at people’s homes!
