+ Our Documentary Won! Winner at Hollywood International independent Documentary Awards,
+We had the pleasure to be part of the Philanthropy And Youth this summer. We loved this generation of do'ers! They are the most amazing interns!
+We have worked with rare Native American Corn and donated the space and hard work. Here is a little about it.
This is part of the White Earth Corn Growers Association. Each winter we register several new growers. Some of the varieties we offer are fairly common, others not. The seed that was planted here is not for the light of heart. Because it is a relatively rare variety, growers have to meet a number of qualifications. We are still building the base of the seed. This one should be publicly available in 2 - 3 more years. Thank you Noreen Thomas for taking this on. Your contribution to the effort to save rare and endangered seed is invaluable. I cannot think of a kinder, gentler person to love and nurture this corn back to an enduring and endless circle of life. Miigwech Niibawa!
+ Project Able
+Evan Thomas, volunteer for The Gifted Learning Project Nonprofit from Moorhead, Mn; and Kristen Eggerling, Hallock, Mn recently received a state award, May 21st in St Paul for Environmental Outreach Education through Minnesota Environmental Initiative. Thomas and with the past support from the University of Minnesota Northwest Partnership of which Kirsten Eggerling is board member has provided learning opportunity of a community garden located on an organic farm near Moorhead, Minnesota. The outreach effort has provided leadership for environmental education for all abilities which included learning about soil science, organic gardening, basic nutrition, as well as how to become environmental stewards. The garden has collaborated with many partners such as University of Minnesota Extension, schools, Lee Thomas Farm (that has provided the land), Moorhead Community Education, and others. The garden also produces at least 1,000 pounds of vegetables that are donated every year to low income families, seniors in assisted living, and to homeless shelters.
