About the Program: 

Ndee Bikíyaa (The People's Farm) is a project of the White Mountain Apache Tribe Water Resources. The Farm currently supports school garden construction, facilitates gardening workshops for the community, and produces crops for distribution at the farmers' market in Whiteriver. The Farm also works with community members to provide garden and nutrition education programs at the farm, utilizes the passive greenhouse, and provides local food to school cafeterias, classes, businesses and Tribal enterprises. Ndee Bikiyaa is located 7 miles southwest of the community of Whiteriver. The farm encompasses over 900 acres that are being restored by the Tribe. In addition to the fields, the farm has a two-acre garden with row covers and garden beds, two hoop houses, a community educational center, and a passive solar greenhouse.
