Nanook Grown

THE NANOOK GROWN program focuses on gardening education, making fresh produce accessible to students, and  promoting locally grown foods. Each summer students can sign up to learn how to grow their own food from peer mentors that work under the guidance of a horticulture professional. Excess produce grown by the program is used at a weekly market table in or near the UAF Wood Center or donated to programs that feed community members experiencing food insecurity. Produce staples grown and sold by the students have include potatoes, peas, lettuce, strawberries and onions. 
Additionally, the program offers events like zero-waste cooking workshops and farm-to-table dinners.
