Rosebud Schneider is a manager at Ziibimijwang Farm, owned by the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians and located near the Mackinac Straits.
Little Traverse Bay Bands created Ziibimijwang Farm in large part to help achieve food sovereignty and expand the use of traditional foods. “You can’t call yourself sovereign unless you grow your own food,” says Joe Van Alstine, a program specialist with the tribe’s Department of Human Services.
Groundwork has partnered with LTBB in areas of food access and food education.
