Overview

The Little Salmon Carmacks First Nations started this community garden project in 2000. The garden produces fresh foods which are distributed within community with priority given to members with diabetes, pregnant and nursing mothers, and a local school. The program also provides several employment opportunities for community members. Noted outcomes include: high demand for the produce and increasing number of members with their own backyard gardens, source of pride and media attention. They have been approached by other communities to learn about the model & practices.
