do you irrigate?
Have you had any issues requesting access to the water?
Has he been limited on irrigating due to drought. Like the Farmers in NM irrigating with the Rio Grande?
hello im sorry for bring late My name is cynthia Valenzuela I Work with the Pascua Yaqui tribe
I worked with youth programming on Salt River for quite a few years. Ken Singh was a great resource for us. Thank you for mentioning him. He would invite the Salt River youth for a tour of his composting farm. And he would donate his compost to the gardens that we were working. I think if you start working in the garden with kids at an early age, it will develop their love for growing and working the land.
for young people, how do we help grow an understanding of food sovereignty?
Thank you Norman.
Thank you Norman!

Also more and more funding coming for that type of ag
