Dream of Wild Health triples acreage as need for food grows

Healther Drake, Dream of Wild Health Farm operations supervisor, and Faith Gronda, seed intern, demonstrate hand pollination of indigenous corn.

Hugo —Dream of Wild Health, one of the longest serving Native-led nonprofits in the Twin Cities, has purchased an additional 20 acres of farmland in Hugo, where it currently has a 10-acre organic farm, indigenous fruit orchard and pollinator meadow.

In response to a growing demand in the Native community for culturally relevant food, as well as increased interest in cultural programs from Native youth and families, the organization’s board of directors and staff decided to take advantage of a unique opportunity to purchase additional acreage on the same street as the existing farm.
