Dream of Wild Health (DWH) is a non-profit organization with an office in Minneapolis, Minnesota and a 30-acre organic farm in Hugo, Minnesota. Their mission is to restore health and wellbeing in the Native community by recovering knowledge of and access to healthy Indigenous foods, medicines and lifeways. Surrounded by plants and medicines grown from the seeds of their ancestors, DWH partners with dozens of urban and tribal organizations on programs that work to restore the mental, physical and emotional health of the Native American community.
Each year DWH teaches Native American youth about gardening, cooking and culture while developing job and leadership skills.They run the Indigenous Food Share CSA and sell produce at 3 farmers markets, including corn, beans and squash from a collection of rare seeds provided by Cora Baker, a Potawatomi elder. DWH is a founding member of the indigenous Seedkeepers Alliance dedicated to returning indigenous foods to the community.
Their relationship with traditional foods, lifeways, and medicines has only grown closer during the COVID-19 pandemic, and they have expanded their efforts to increase food access. At Dream of Wild Health, we grow seeds and we grow leaders.
