Whats New in community -sally auger retires.jpgDream of Wild Health, an organic farm specializing in American Indian agriculture and education programs for the urban Native community, announced that Executive Director Sally Auger will retire.
Auger founded Peta Wakan Tipi ("Sacred Fire Lodge" in Lakota) in 1986 with her late husband, John Eichhorn, to provide culturally based transitional housing for Native people in recovery. In 1993, they opened a second house, Mother Earth Lodge, for Native women.
As part of Peta Wakan Tipi, Sally and John started the Dream of Wild Health farm program in 1998 to provide a place where Native people could reconnect with traditional foods and medicines, as well as rebuild their relationship with the land.
A community feast was held on August 27 to honor Auger's life work with gifts, a brief video documentary, and the sharing of stories. Operations Director Diane Wilson will succeed Auger as the new Executive Director.
