Meagen Baldy, Eating Healthy in Indian Country

Grady Walker, from Green Fire Farms, emailed me a couple of months ago, and said there was someone I really should interview, Meagen Baldy.  Well, of course Grady was right!

Meagen is the Community Garden Coordinator in Hoopa, hosts a You Tube show called Eating Healthy in Indian Country, is a UC Master Food Preserver…and oh yes…she has 4 children!  And they are amazing!  Recently I was helping to cook for the Master Food Preserver graduation program and Meagen comes in with a heaping bag of fry bread and starts whipping up some salmon spread from salmon she has smoked and canned herself — and in come her 4 children — “can I help?!” they plead…I wish I had such help in the kitchen at home.  They launched into making pizzas for the party — enthusiastic as I taught them how to stretch the dough and put the toppings on.  And this — in a nutshell — is Meagen…teaching children to know about their food and to cook is part of her mission, where the rubber hits the road, walking the talk — and you can tell Meagen does it all with grace and style — you can check out her YouTube videos and see for yourself!
