A program of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, the Bago Grows Program support families in learning to grow their own food from seeds to promote better health outcomes for Tribal members. Through Bago Grows, families can access raised garden beds, soil, plants, seeds, and technical assistance, which has improved the quality of health and lives of those in the Tribal community through increased access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Within the last two years of the program, nearly 250 families have started their own gardens, putting access to healthy food right in their own backyards.
