SEA Homeschoolers is having a raffle to kickoff our new service project! We are partnering with nonprofit organization Bringing Food Forrest to NE Florida to hold a Permaculture Design course on the Lakota Reservation at Pine Ridge that includes building a sustainable green house and starting a food forest. Pine Ridge residents experience an extreme lack of access to fresh fruits and vegetables year round due to remoteness, severe poverty and cultural decimation of traditional food sourcing. The most heavily impacted include children, elderly and veteran populations. Our goal would be to stretch that season by installation of a sustainably built greenhouse allowing an extended farm fresh produce season on site. Given the devastating impact that food insecurity can have on health status, not only would a food forest garden help ameliorate a financial burden on tribal members, but it would impact the disproportionate negative health outcomes suffered by tribal members due to extreme food poverty issues.
Raffle tickets can be purchased in our shop, 1 ticket for $5, 5 tickets for $20, and 15 tickets for $50. Winners will be randomly selected on Wednesday July 5, 2017. Winners will receive an email asking them to select their prize. Prizes will be available to winners on a first come first served basis, so be sure to check your email!
