In 2023, CEER Services spearheaded several projects, including assisting a non-profit organization on the Pine Ridge Reservation in securing a large grant for general operating support from the Growing Justice Fund for Equitable Good Food Procurement. This funding aims to foster the growth and development of a 12-month Greenhouse Food Security Project, contributing to establishing local food and regional value chains. We also secured critical funding for a life-saving firewood bank, ensuring the distribution of wood to families on the reservation. 

We are currently involved in designing an earth-bermed, climate-hardened polyculture greenhouse system. The intended site will showcase geothermal heating and cooling systems, rainwater collection for irrigation, and other sustainable practices. The objective is to establish an enduring demonstration site for technology that serves the community by demonstrating a business model that provides local food security amid shifting weather patterns, offering educational opportunities, and fostering economic strength.
