RE: nutritional self reliance

Luke, this isn't really an answer to your question, but you should also look
at the impact of community gardens on the nutritional requirements of Cubans
during these 40 years of sanctions and embargoes.  Community/urban gardens
have played an important role there.  It would be a good model, especially
since the same organization has been responsible for a maladaptive response
to Cuba and Native Americans.

Does anyone know where I can find or have any 
information on community gardening on Native American 
reservations? I am a grad student in Anthropology 
looking to do research on how community gardening may 
be able to improve nutrition and social aspects on 
rural Native America. Especially since so many are 
dependent on horrible, low-quality government 
commodities for food. Diabetes is high. Conditions just 
like the Third World (Pine Ridge, SD home of the Oglala 
Sioux and others) Can't find anything anywhere!! HELP! 
Thanks so much! -Luke Donahue
