Yésa Nédéwahe Saponi-Tutelo Indigenous Gardens
We are a non-profit organization, we are looking forward to a peaceful world by helping each other to join hands together to bring a better future for all children. This is for the Food Sovereignty of the people. We support the connections of our youth to the knowledge of their elders.
We try to follow the model gifted to us by Braiding the Sacred and Alliance of the Native Seed Keepers. We have spent 16 seasons growing our 4 Directional raised beds into 13 raised beds. Producing three sisters (Corn, Squash and Beans), and the lesser mentioned fourth sister the sunflower.
We also grow strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, along with traditional herbs and medicines.
We must draw upon the strength of ancestral Corn teachings. It is time to plant. It is time to unify. We have also expanded into a contemporary farming using our tower garden systems.

What People Say
The generosity of this organization makes it possible for me to continue having education opportunities in this difficult area.Jane Jacobs
Wonderful job with those kids that need us and people from various places all over the world. I will definitely join your group as a volunteer.Patrick Suarez
In an indigenous community, there are some things that just cannot be commodified – land, water, air, animals, even the health of the people, all of which are considered collective resources. Collective resources require collective and community management. Contemporary agriculture doesn’t have the same base. In contemporary agriculture, there are individualized, commodified resources like land, you can buy water, at one point in our history you could even buy somebody’s body and health.
