DULUTH, MN -- The American Indian Community Housing Organization (AICHO) kicked off its "Together We Grow" program Thursday with a rooftop event.
The 16-month program aims to educate young BIPOC students about various indigenous practices, like agriculture, arts, and life skills.
The program featured a musical performance from members of the "Dream of Wild Health" group.
Hope Flanagan with the organization provided the blessing and talked about how important this kind of education is.
"We work with young people to teach them about growing food, cooking food, and learning how to create their own businesses with food as well," said Flanagan.
The "Together We Grow Program" is a continuation of AICHO's Indigenous Food Sovereignty initiatives.
