“Dream of Wild Health is an amazing non-profit that serves the greater Minneapolis area. Their farm in Hugo, MN provides a large handful of youth an unforgettable experience to cook, garden, learn archery and become rooted in nature once again. I always come away from a visit at DWH with a greater sense of peace and solidarity.” - Zach Paige

“My daughter has attended both the Cora's Kids and Garden Warriors Programs at Dream of Wild Health for several years. The program and staff - from the van drivers to the director, have been excellent. The staff is knowledgeable and they are passionate about working with youth and the community. The programs teach about traditional American Indian ways and values, the land, healthy cooking and eating, plants and financial responsibilities. The youth are given additional opportunities to work in the community, whether it be selling garden wares at craft fairs, the farmers market or working with Roots for the Home Team at Twin's and Gopher's games. Youth also have opportunities to attend conferences, where they get experience presenting about topics that they have learned about on the farm. Dream of Wild Health is dedicated to youth development. Our family is thankful for the opportunities that have been given to our daughter through her involvement with Dream of Wild Health. Pilamaya, Pinagigi, Miigwetch!” - Anonymous
