Community Gardens for Standing Rock

She says it’s a lot of work, but worth every bit of it.
That’s how Sue Isbell describes this community garden.
This one is growing in Fort Yates, but there are more growing gardens in Cannonball, and McLaughlin.
It’s all made possible though a USDA Special Crops block grant.
Isbell says, this crop holds a special place in her heart  because, while other places have farmer’s markets, they have a barter’s market.
 
“Buy, barter, trade, or take, I don’t care because our purpose is to simply get fresh produce to the citizen’s of Standing Rock.  Last year we produced over 5 ton of food,” says Sue Isbell, NDSU Sioux County Extention Agent.
 
She says there is really nothing they don’t grow.  
She says they even grow artichokes which help the area’s diabetics.
