The Wind River Food Sovereignty Project supports efforts to increase access to local, healthy, affordable fresh food for the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming. The program supports food production and distribution of healthy food on the reservation through a collaborative network of organizations, including Blue Mountain Associates, all for the purpose of improving health and well-being in Indian Country. To accomplish this goal, the program utilizes a producers’ cooperative of 20 home gardeners and 10 producers; holds weekly farmers markets on the reservation throughout the year; establishes new market channels for producers, and hosts educational programs, training, and technical assistance that support traditional food production.
