Through this program, TTCD addresses our strategic direction to improve food security through community agriculture. Since 2012, Tyonek Tribal Conservation District has worked with the Native Village of Tyonek to develop an agricultural program aimed at enhancing food security and providing fresh organic vegetables to community members. Each year, TTCD and NVT work together to ensure community goals and needs are being met. The garden has grown into a 1.5 acre operation with two NRCS funded high tunnels (48ftx22ft), solar powered irrigation and ventilation systems, 15 outdoor raised beds, over 2,000 row feet of potatoes and mixed vegetable crops, perennial fruits, and plans for expansion in the coming years.
