The Red and Green School is a collection of community gardens across from Minot State University. One garden includes squash, corn, and beans—known as the "three sisters"— and is inspired by Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation (MHA Nation) gardening traditions. We also have gardens inspired by the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians gardening traditions, including pumpkins, strawberries, rhubarb, raspberries, and a gooseberry bush. In addition, there is a pollinator garden, prairie roses, and a Colorado Blue Spruce tree. These gardens are supported by individual seed sponsors and community volunteers.
These gardens are intended to function as educational spaces for people of all ages to learn about the Earth and their local ecologies.
