Seasonal Gardener

CRYP is currently seeking a full-time gardener for the 2018 growing season (April to Oct. 15).

The naturally grown, 2.5-acre Winyan Toka Win (Leading Lady) Garden is cornerstone of our programming here in Eagle Butte. Not only do we use Winyan Toka Win’s fresh, nutritious produce in meals and snacks at both youth centers, we incorporate it into menu and gift items at our Keya (Turtle) Cafe and Keya Gift Shop, and we sell it to the community through our seasonal, weekly Leading Lady Farmers Market.

What’s more, the garden is a priceless living classroom for our 4- to 12-year-old Garden Club participants, and for the teens who are completing Sustainable Agriculture Internships. The garden also helps strengthen the connection the children have with their traditional Lakota values and life ways.
