Round Up to Support Dream of Wild Health

Our May Seedlings recipient is Dream of Wild Health, serving Phillips, South Minneapolis.

Dream of Wild Health restores health and well-being in the Native American community by recovering cultural knowledge of and access to healthy indigenous food. They do this through farm production, providing educational programs for Native youth and families in gardening and creating opportunities for youth employment and leadership. They own a 10-acre organic farm in Hugo, MN and maintain presence in the Phillips neighborhood.

Dream of Wild Health supports healthy food access through two farm markets, a 35-member CSA program, and donations. Their farm and programs serve over 5,500 people each year. They work with Native people to recover traditional relationships with indigenous plants and medicines through programs that engage youth and families directly with the Earth. Rebuilding this sacred relationship helps Native people reconnect with their culture, develop pride in their accomplishments, and improve physical and spiritual health.
