Tribe Community Garden
This year CIT-ED was awarded the EPA Sustainable Materials Management grant, which we are using to develop a community compost and gardening program. To measure progress, we weigh donated food scraps to keep track of how much food waste is being diverted from landfills. During the fall we will weigh the produce harvested and then distribute to Tribal citizens.
The compost produced from food scraps donated by Tribal citizens, Little Arrows, and our worm farm will be used to add nutrients to our soil and plants. We have already planted tomatoes, squash, corn, beans, cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, watermelon, cantaloupe, basil, chives, parsley, sage, spinach, pumpkins, and will be adding more once the greenhouse is built. We will also be having community volunteer and outreach days throughout the summer, and the USDA will be teaching a canning class in the fall.
