Flowering Tree Permaculture Institute
Located in Santa Clara Pueblo, Flowering Tree is working with health issues of native communities through the use of foods as medicine. Creating “The Pueblo Food Experience” project, we showed that eating our original pre-contact foods helped improve health in every area. From this study, we created a cookbook, presentations, short film, and helped another film called Return (centered around women leading health movements in Native country). We built a traditional women’s cooking house for traditional cooking, a place for women to gather, share, and have ceremony. Flowering Tree continues to work towards getting our original foods back into the community.
