The arrival of Spring on the Pine Ridge Reservation has the customary trappings of Spring everywhere: trees begin to bud, a few hardy plants begin to push out of the snow and ice, and the warmer weather brings a profound sense of relief.
Exciting News for Food Distribution!
On Jeri's trip to the Reservation, she was fortunate enough to meet with the leaders of the Medicine Root Gardening Program in Kyle, SD.
This organization grows an enormous variety of vegetables that we would like to include in our food distribution such as potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, snow peas, turnips, beets, squash and pumpkins to name a few.
We wanted to share Jeri's story because to know her is to love her. The following is the acceptance speech she made at her Alma mater, Berea College, where she received their 2018 Service Award.
