Native Wellness Garden

Supporting the community to prevent and manage chronic disease through education and awareness while strengthening and restoring traditional practices of healthy living.

Native Wellness Garden

​The Native Wellness Garden (NWG) began in 2014 as a result of a partnership between the Gerald L Ignace Indian Health Center (GLIIHC) and UW- Extension. In 2020, the NWG produced and distributed to community members nearly 800 pounds of organic produce. To maintain the integrity of Native American organic agricultural practices, the NWG prohibits the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers.
