Producing food in Alaska is a challenge.
In the past, it was easy to grow your own food, but now that demand for it is skyrocketing, many Alaskans have to turn to organic produce.
Organic farming is not just about producing more nutritious foods; it is also about respecting local traditions, including local traditions of growing plants in small plots.
In fact, organic farming has become so widespread that Alaska is the only state in the country that does not have its own organic food market.
So when Alaska Native families came to Alaska to open a new grocery store, the Alaska Native Community Food Co-op, they decided to start with the most sustainable, locally produced food available.
Alaskan natives have long been involved in the organic food movement, and now, they want to share their knowledge with the world.
