As the harvest winds down and the fields are cleared for the winter, so has the third installment of Healthy Roots. Over the course of 6 weeks, the Healthy Roots team and the amazing community members who participated have shared the ins and outs of harvesting and preserving our own Healthy Roots foods. We even got out for a couple great fall hikes – one for medicine gathering and the other for nut collecting. Conversation, collaborative learning and healthy activity were at the heart of our autumn campaign.
We are very excited to announce that we will return in January 2016 with all new participants committing to the Indigenous foods challenge we launched for the first time in 2015. This year, stay tuned as we follow Kylee Vyse, Lindsay Bomberry, Team GenHawk (a family of three), Jenyka Webster, Kitty R. Lynn, Lori Davis Hill and Rick Hill as they commit to transforming their lives through a traditional foods diet and regular activity.
