Mashkiikii Gitigan (Medicine Garden), located across from the Indian Health Board, has a mission to create and nurture the culture and practice of local organic food production, healthy eating, and healthy living.
The urban farmer can be found at the garden most weekdays from 10AM–6PM. Community members and program staff can stop by to visit, volunteer, try the latest vegetables, learn gardening techniques, or just enjoy the space.
All people are welcome and encouraged to participate in activities at Mashkiikii Gitigan.
