Elderberry Wisdom Farm Mission Statement
Elderberry Wisdom Farm provides opportunities for Native Americans, communities of color, and public audiences to raise awareness of the rich cultural heritage and traditional ecological knowledge of America’s First Peoples. We work with diverse collaborative partners to provide educational and workforce opportunities so Native people can fulfill meaningful career pathway plans, strengthen health and wellness and achieve prosperity. Committed to diversity, equity and inclusion for all, we strive to strengthen understanding, appreciation and respect for the wisdom and knowledge of Native American elders, cultural leaders and indigenous scientists.
Elderberry Wisdom Farm has an opening for a Summer Habitat Restoration Intern. The project includes planning and preparation for our fall Habitat Restoration Internship, working with volunteers, plus farm maintenance activities at our two-acre farm near Salem, OR. In addition to the opportunity for experiential service learning into conservation, habitat restoration, soil regeneration, transitioning to organic, Native plant medicines, microenterprise development, and other topics, the intern will also be able to add a valuable record of employment and experience to their resume.
The Summer Habitat Restoration Intern will assist Elderberry Wisdom Farm staff to accomplish its Native Agriculture Biodiversity Accelerator. This includes the following:
Help coordinate the upcoming Habitat Restoration Internship being held Fall 2023. Support Social Media consultant to promote the internship (social media, etc.)
Help the Farm Manager maintain plants at the farm, greenhouse, and possibly man the Saturday Farmer’s Market booth
Help the director complete monthly progress reports of activities for grant reports. Complete other tasks as needed
This individual will work for eight weeks from July 10, 2023, through August 31, 2023, working an average of 110 hours per month @ $18.00 an hour. Additional information is also available at our website at www.elderberrywisdom.org.
