Bridgeport Indian Colony is focused on growing food through their Traditional and Ecological Knowledge Program. Their program includes a domestic vegetable garden, native plant garden, an orchard with 35 fruit trees built in a permaculture design, 3 bee hives providing local honey, and a state of the art humid controlled greenhouse that allows them to grow food throughout the year.

In this episode, we talk to Justin Nalder, Tribal Administrator at Bridgeport Indian Colony. Justin gives an update on the Traditional and Ecological Knowledge Program efforts to provide food for their people, while taking us on a walking tour of their garden area.
