O'Chiese Our Roots, Our Future Self-Sustaining Project

 

Got started, and as I always say, “Better late than never!”  This project is being funded with extra NCBR money awarded for this project specifically.  

The message from our last community meeting was loud and clear.  O’Chiese people want COMMUNITY building endeavours!  Pair that with O’Chiese people’s love of food, and you have a winning combination!

 

The potatoes are in!  Thank you, Myrna and all the SA clients and volunteers who helped!

I won’t list names because I don’t want to forget anyone. Thank you to the donator of the field, donators of the tractor and equipment, equipment operators, mechanical assistance, prayers, workers, Leadership, Elders; all who did a part so far.

 

SA clients can give back to the community by doing 1 hour per week or 4 hours per month in the project as pre-employment readiness.  ETW-Expected to Work clients need to be ready and able to go to work, and this project is a great way to keep in work-mode. 

 

We will have incentives to SA clients who do 15 hours or more.

 

Also, anyone from the community is WELCOME TO VOLUNTEER!  This is about planting seeds for our FUTURE GENERATIONS, our CHILDREN.  It’s about getting back to BASICS, the EARTH, and ways to help build C0MMUNITY.  This is a way to generate our own food and share.  This year is just a start. 

 

Tammy found an eagle feather at the garden as soon as she got there! A little bird has been hanging out like a pet with all the people.

Myrna Strawberry is your go-to for the project.  She can be reached at the office, on cell (587)591-2905, or on Facebook. 

We will be keeping record of VOLUNTEERS and giving t-shirts out, so if you see someone in one of our t-shirts it is because they helped build the community by volunteering.

 

(If you get a chance check out an inspiring youtube video about a band in Saskatchewan growing organic non-GMO food.  Google search “The Great laws of Nature: Indigenous Organic Agriculture Documentary”).

Respectfully,  Kari Bayley
