A total of 700 Chief’s Community Garden Kits were distributed to EBCI tribal members last week. In its ninth year, the garden kit program remains a much-anticipated program in the community as evidenced by the hundreds of people who braved the rains to receive their kit at the Yellowhill Outdoor Gym on Thursday, April 26.
A total of 355 kits were given out Thursday. The rest were distributed in Cherokee County, Snowbird and at Tsali Manor.
“It’s all about healthy eating and healthy living,” said Sarah McClellan-Welch, EBCI Cooperative Extension who related that, according to a survey, over 80 percent of the kits are planted each year. (SCOTT MCKIE B.P./One Feather)
