Growing Food Producers on the Rosebud

In this episode of Food Revolution, we hear from Karen Moore, one of the SFSI's WIK interns. The WIK internship, short for Waicahya Icagapi Kte or ‘They Will Grow into Producers,' is a year-long paid adult internship for tribal members interested in becoming food producers. Our first intern cohort has been working and learning with the SFSI since November 2019. The internship was designed in collaboration with Dakota Rural Action to provide both on-farm and classroom training for community members who want to be a part of building a local foods economy right here on the Rosebud Reservation. The two types of training allows them to learn the technical skills needed to grow and produce food and also ensures they have the business background necessary to make their future operations financially sustainable and profitable.  Full show notes & transcription available here.                         ________________________________ Enjoy listening to Food Revolution?
