2018 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
Six permanent raised-bed gardens beds were installed to be used for traditional Dena'ina medicinal plants, improving the local public spaces and promoting health.
Six raised-bed gardening beds were constructed and placed on the campus of the Dena'ina Wellness Center run by the Kenaitze Indian Tribe. The location provided a way to promote walkability, encourage physical activity, provide social activities and complement the gardening efforts performed inside the center's greenhouse. Garden signage include each plant's Dena'ina name, the word's translation and information about the plant's use.
