A leading force engaging people and ideas in building a better future for rural America.
Community Food Associate
Farm and Community Program
I am an enrolled member of the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska, mother of 9 children, wife to an extremely understanding, patient man with a heart of gold. We have built our life together on a farm just outside of Walthill, Nebraska.
I started working for the Center in 2015. I worked with the current backyard gardeners and the two farmers markets located on the Omaha reservation.
Currently, I am the Community Foods Specialist and am so excited for the growing season to start. I have so many ideas for the future.
My passions are to at least triple our gardeners, create inter-generational partnerships, and grow more traditional Omaha foods. I also want to implement the “Good Food Basket” (from Santee) for this area.
This is only the beginning of the possibilities I see. You've got to start somewhere, right?
