Southern Ute Agricultural Department Division Head, Kevin Mallow, takes a moment to speak about the importance of farming, and the cost associated with this important livelihood as part of Food Distribution’s ongoing video series, Tuesday, Sept. 1. The Southern Ute Agriculture Division offers training and assistance to local farmers, they also provide equipment that would otherwise be cost prohibitive for individuals to own and maintain.
Food Distribution Program Manager, Deanna Frost, emphasized the importance of Food Sovereignty on the reservation and throughout rural communities. Adding that growing a garden or raising one’s own food is also a great way to create a sense of personal accomplishment.
Look for the fourth installment of the Food Distribution’s video series on the Southern Ute Indian Tribe’s Facebook page – coming soon!
