Wind River Grow Our Own and Geodomes

Geodesic Geodome Greenhouse build at St. Stephens Indian School

Wind River Grow Our Own has been building geodesic geodome greenhouses on the Wind River Reservation from a grant received through the Dream Offering Grant and handled by Janice Rebhan, President of LSCA. The organization received $30,000 to build 6 geodesic geodome greenhouses. The first geodome was built in Fort Washakie at the Eastern Shoshone Recovery Center. The recovery center will use the geodome to grow foods, and medicinal plant medicines such as sweetgrass, and sage, and mint.

The third geodome went to Clint Wagon and family for their start up business of helping the community with giving plant medicines such as chokecherry start and sage and sweetgrass for those who want it. In the winter they plan to utilize the dome during hunting season to hang meat to dry for dried meat. Dried meat was made yearly by those who came before. They would make the dried meat to have food sustenances in the winter. Dried meat can be eaten dried or put into soups, sometimes shredded dried meat with fat and mints.
