This site provides information on a USDA research project. The primary objective of this project, a teaching and demonstration garden, is to provide hands-on teaching and demonstrations to grade school-age children, elders, the USDA Tribal Food Service Center, and other residents of the reservation. The primary teaching and demonstration efforts will target knowing native plants of the Americas; planting and establishing plants of the Americas; understanding garden vegetable culture and production practices; and understanding the nutritional value of plants of the Americas. The final objective is to promote and foster an effort toward in situ conservation of the native plant species used by the Nez Perce Tribe for traditional foods and to collaborate on the conservation approach and possibly acquire samples for ex situ conservation.

This Guide is designed for soil survey, vegetation, and ecological site or unit inventory work in order to help soil scientists and other inventory specialists collect interpretable data about soil change within the human time scale. This Guide describes a sampling system to measure dynamic soil properties for all major land uses (except urban lands where the land and soil have been significantly reshaped). The Guide includes instructions for project planning, field execution, and data analysis and storage. Procedures for gathering general management history on croplands and vegetation data on other lands are included to verify and validate the management regime or plant community where dynamic soil property data are collected. Vegetation data are also collected to provide context for interpreting dynamic soil properties and contribute to the interpretation of soil-plant-hydrologic interactions.
