Culture is not just the shared ideas, values and customs of a group of people. Culture is cultivation, growth and improvement, and cultures are often built around food. A new greenhouse in Tok represents every meaning of culture. Gateway Greenhouse, built in 2013, is entering its first full year of growing. The goal: provide fresh vegetables to the Alaska Gateway School District, which serves about 375 students in the communities of Tok, Dot Lake, Eagle, Tetlin, Tanacross, Mentasta Lake and Northway. Students get to take part, learn about cultivation and experience the joy of eating fruit and vegetables picked on the spot.
