As a chapter of Dakota Rural Action, Homegrown Sioux Empire shares DRA’s grassroots and community based origins. We believe that reviving our land based heritage and incorporating that wisdom with new energy, ideas, and methods will create the best possible quality of life and help ensure a vibrant future for Sioux Falls area citizens across the socioeconomic spectrum. We support democratic community governance and the establishment and maintenance of infrastructure which fosters interdependent self-sufficiency for the production of food, energy and housing.

Homegrown is currently focused on working to promote self-sufficiency, sustainable agriculture, energy and water conservation, and working to create a cleaner Big Sioux River.

Chapter Goals:
(1) Builds strong networks which embrace a culture of interdependent self-sufficiency.
(2) Creates channels for local resource sharing
(3) Promotes, educates, and advocates for sustainable urbanization and ecological economics throughout Sioux Falls and the surrounding areas
