Gardens at AYC: Bringing Regenerative Agriculture to Pine Ridge Reservation

By growing our own food, we are nurturing a deeper connection to the land and empowering our community with the knowledge and skills needed for sustainable living. The benefits of these gardens extend beyond just providing a source of nourishment. They foster a sense of pride, cultural preservation, and holistic well-being for the Lakota people.

With dedicated efforts and the guidance of renowned expert, Gabe Brown, we are transforming designated areas of the Reservation into flourishing gardens.

Through careful planning, topsoil management, and the construction of planter boxes and retaining walls, we are creating the ideal environment for seeds to take root and flourish.

Join us as we sow the seeds of change and foster a resilient and sustainable future for the Lakota community. Together, we can build a brighter tomorrow where fresh, locally grown food is accessible to all.
