With the purchase of the Winona’s Hemp and Heritage Farm in the fall of 2017, we have been able to synchronize and plan our fields of heritage corn, beans, squash, Jerusalem artichokes, potatoes, tobacco and now hemp. We are also working to cultivate perennials in one of our fields. We’ve built good relations in education and outreach, and in short, are very proud of our work.
Education and Outreach Work
We co-sponsored with Winona’s Hemp the Indigenous Hemp Conference, March 4-7 2018 at Maplelag resort on the White Earth reservation. Attended by 70 or so people representing Indigenous nations from Saskatchewan Dakota to Ho Chunk and Mesquakie Nations, we were able to provide a forum including horticulture, seed varieties and tribal jurisdictional issues.
