Merging Traditional and Modern Growing Methods for Food Sustainability

Susan Sekaquaptewa presents about her efforts working with the Hopi tribal community on increasing backyard gardens, food processing, and preservation in arid environments. Her teachings are a combination of honoring Hopi food traditions while teaching new methods with the goal of increased self-sustainability. Susan guides us through creating our own sustainable food systems, both as individuals and as a greater community.
