Pine Ridge Community Garden Fundraiser — 1 Comment

  1. Hello everyone.

    Whilst reading about this fundraiser, they also write about the very challenging housing conditions at Pine Ridge AND their vision to empower the residents with Natural Building of new homes made of earth:

    “In its first year Ota Au will build a foundation, learning how to build a garden with recycled materials and working with compressed earth brick technology to construct housing. The earth houses are mold-free, preventing a major health risk on the reservation.

    Sixty percent of homes in Pine Ridge are infested with deadly black mold and need to be burned down. The on-reservation housing crisis is severe, and some two-bedroom homes shelter thirty or more people at a time.

    The long-term goal is to empower families by teaching them build earth houses complete with a permaculture garden, so they can teach their tiospaye or extended family this sustainable way of life.

    Let us each honor these folks with even a few dollars. They are almost to their goal. We can help them exceed that goal EASILY!

    Blessings to all our relations.
