Food Independence and Security

gardeningDue to the expensive nature of distribution, mainly being via aircraft, there is a high cost associated with fresh food on many First Nations communities. Further,  there is a growing body of evidence to suggest that the nutritional content in argi-business derrived foods are significantly less than traditionally grown foods.

To meet these problems, Young Star House has opted to implement a food independance and food security program. This program involves teaching youth basic gardening skills that can be transferred to their home communities. 

The focus of this program is to encourage interest in gardening vegetables toward the goals of cheaper and more healthier food choices. By providing a structured environment that facilitates successful gardening we hope to instill the seeds of a lifelong desire to further develop thier skills in this crucial life supporting area.gardening2
