Disadvantaged Reservations Turn to Community Gardens
Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota: Gardening might be a
trendy, new hobby for eco-conscious hipsters, but its purpose,
to provide food for a family; still holds promise for many
Americans. On the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, located in Slim
Buttes, S.D., community gardens give families the only fresh
fruits and vegetables they eat.
