The Simple Plate: Getting "right-sized" through growing food and relationship with land

Dream of Wild Health/Facebook

How can one little plot of land be healing a body, a mind, and a spirit?  How can it lift those spirits, change an outlook, connect people to their history and culture and even bring traditional teachings and values alive?

Hope Flanagan knows.

The American Indian Community Housing Organization will have a quiet, private, blessing ceremony and celebration this week to kick off the Giinawiind Giginitaawigi'gomin, or Together We Grow program for Indigenous and BIPOC urban kids in the area.

Kids and community elders will make garden signs in Ojibwe and English and there will be traditional music.

Hope Flanagan is a member of the Seneca Nation and the Turtle Clan, and she'll be offering the garden blessing; not only a chance to bless the garden itself, but a chance to reflect on the many blessings it provides.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
