Catawba Indian Nation
Lauren’s dream is to encourage traditional gardening practices by creating an outdoor nature classroom to share the cultural importance and uses of indigenous crops.
She will not only help establish a community garden, but Lauren also plans on producing learning materials and workshops about these traditional crops. She also plans to expand a seed bank in the community.
Lauren is passionate about empowering her community to learn about how plants can improve individual well-being.
