'Grandmother Earth's Gift of Life Garden' to be dedicated at NDSU

A new garden honoring American Indians will be dedicated on Monday, June 1, at 1:30 p.m., at the corner of Centennial Boulevard and Administration Ave., on the NDSU campus.

“Grandmother Earth’s Gift of Life Garden” will feature native North Dakota plants. Tribal colleges from around the state will provide soil to add to the garden.

“The earth plays an integral role in Native American culture. There is great importance placed on taking care of the earth. Having NDSU provide a space for this garden shows the university’s respect toward the Native American culture,” said Jacylnn Davis-Wallette, assistant vice president for equity, diversity and global outreach.

The dedication ceremony will include a blessing from a spiritual leader and seeds will be given to those who attend.

NDSU’s Extension service and plant sciences department helped plan the garden. The multicultural student services department sponsors the garden.
