In Michigan’s upper peninsula, a program to restore native groundcover is underway. It is called the Zaagkii Project, and one of the tools they have is a Growing Dome that they utilize for propagation of endangered and culturally significant plants. This 33′ Growing Dome built in Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC), is also used to give training to the tribal leaders. Below is a video with Karen Anderson, a representative from KBIC, to give some more information on the program and their progress.
In the following video Growing Spaces co-owner, Udgar Parsons, takes a tour of the new operation in 2010. See what this beautiful project looks like:
