Native farmers are deeply concerned about the erosion of community support for agriculture. The Traditional Native American Farmers Association (TNAFA), which now includes 50 families from 18 tribes, seeks to reverse the recent decline in farming by re-invigorating agricultural traditions and increasing economic opportunities for farmers.
The organization holds traditional organic farming workshops, distributes seeds to member farmers, and educates Native students by planting demonstration gardens at schools.
