Northern Voices: Leah Lemm Spotlights Gitigaanike Red Lake Local Foods Initiative

Leah Lemm

Leah Lemm talks  with David Manuel and Michael VanHorn, both work with the Gitigaanike/Red Lake Local Foods Initiative.

The foods initiative is a few years old, but they already have multiple land plots to farm and garden, they distribute seeds to community members, and they partner with other groups to bring local food practices to more and more people.

They also interact with the community largely through their Gitigaanike Facebook page. And they also hold a yearly food summit.
