5/28/14 Radio Program Topic: Community Gardens

Many of us are looking for ways to improve our health. Have you ever gotten involved in community gardening? We invite you to join our conversation about community gardens across Native America. What’s different about gardening with your neighbors or fellow tribal members? Have you learned tips from your other gardeners or community elders? Guests include: Vanessa Cooper, Lummi traditional plants educator with the Traditional Plants and Foods Program at the Northwest Indian College and Randi Byrd, Community Engagement Coordinator for the American Indian Center at UNC Chapel Hill
