Sitting Bull College Growing Native American Agriculture
 
 
 
This project aims to build community capacity to raise vegetables and other agricultural products for both self-sustenance and to be sold in community markets. Establishing these markets will create a network of producers and entrepreneurs and create new economic opportunity that will help to alleviate local poverty. This project will develop and disseminate culturally relevant information about agricultural production and agribusiness to the community through workshops and presentations. The community markets will also increase access to educational resources and promote local youth engagement.
