Water Catchment Systems Project for
Indigenous Beginning Ranchers and Farmers
Native American Agriculture Grant
Our grant application has been approved and we have the opportunity to provide Water Catchment System installations to 40 Indigenous beginning farmers and ranchers in the ancestral lands of the Apache, Hopi, Navajo, Pueblo, and Ute Nations (modern-day Southwest). This is going to lead to a lasting and powerful impact on these communities, enhancing water security for food growing and ranching as well as the ability to create a thriving, self-sufficient food system.
You Can Help Support This Important Work
One of the communities we are working with has offered to cover costs for 9 additional installs if Seeds in Common can fund the cost for the contractors! While NAAF is providing the majority of the funding, this has led to a shortfall - and we are asking our community to help support the implementation of this project. Any donation sent to Seeds in Common will be earmarked for this project until the additional costs of project are procured. You can be part of the reason this project sees success in 2024!
