Indigenous agriculture encompasses the foods and medicines grown on farms and harvested from the land and water. In an effort to support Tribal Nations in their pursuit of protecting and revitalizing agriculture, USET established the Agriculture Program within the Office of Environmental and Resource Management. Current projects include propagation and restoration of river cane, youth engagement programs, and direct technical assistance to USET member Tribal Nation farms and farmers. The farms among the USET membership are as diverse as the Tribal Nations themselves, ranging from massive maple syrup operations to small buffalo herds and community gardens. If you want to learn more about how we support agriculture within the region, please email OERM Agriculture Program Manager Lea Zeise at lzeise@usetinc.org.
