Self-governing, the authority of a state to govern itself or another state.
Indigenous food sovereignty and food security can be described as local efforts to transform and reclaim food systems, combat hunger and health issues, and become self-reliant and autonomous.
My relationship with food sovereignty is teaching and providing education and resources to individuals and small community groups who are interested in gardening. I am self-taught and passionate to share the knowledge I have on methods to make gardening easier for all age groups.
I have a certificate in Horticulture and have participated in two Thompson Rivers University research trips to First Nations communities for community engagement and food security topics.
