Food Security & Sovereignty
FSS has strong participation by local community members including local youth and youth serving programs. The multiple workshops and experiential learning opportunities available through this Project build knowledge and skills that can be applied to personal gardens, native food gathering and food preservation. Community members are encouraged to volunteer in building and maintaining the gardens, while learning how to grow common food plants in the gardens located at Chukchi Campus. The emphasis of FSS is fostering the understanding between subsistence and agriculture and how both benefit the region in terms of secure sources of healthy, locally grown produce and traditional food.
