Growing Resilience is a partnership between Blue Mountain Associates, Eastern Shoshone Tribal Health, the Wind River Development Fund, and the University of Wyoming.
-Regular reports on your health (once after each health data collection session).
-Cash stipends for participating in health data collection. Adults receive $40, children $15, and each household a $20 transportation stipend for each data collection session (twice each year). For a family of 2 adults and 2 children, that comes to $130 per one-hour session!
In families with more than one adult, AT LEAST TWO ADULTS MUST PARTICIPATE, both in two years of gardening AND four health data collection sessions over two years.
-Control participants will participate in four health data collections over two years (with cash stipends for each) before receiving gardening support in 2020.
-To be eligible to participate, you must be willing to wait to have a home vegetable garden until 2020 if you are randomly selected to be a "control" participant.
-Controls are key to the research, as we need to compare health of participants with gardens and also without gardens. Without controls, the research would not work!
***Note, we can provide transportation to the data collection sessions for anyone who needs it!
