Eco3.21 Fond du Lac Reservation Food Sovereignty VISTA
 
 
 
VISTA members will be serving on the Fond du Lac Reservation working on the Band’s food sovereignty efforts and the development of a new Agricultural Division. Activities will include program development, Tribal based trainings, grant writing and attending meetings to coordinate and support Tribal efforts to address poverty-related food insecurity. The VISTA member will be based in the Fond du Lac Reservation’s Planning Division and will work with all divisional staff throughout their term. There will be other opportunities to work on other types of projects such as transportation and comprehensive planning and grant writing. Some travel to offsite trainings may occur. The project site, located in the Sawyer, MN, is a thirty-six-acre farm that will be the initial core of activities as well as potential onsite housing, with opportunities in other locations on the Reservation. VISTA member will be part of the Ecolibrium3 AmeriCorps VISTA cohort serving in northeastern Minnesota. Although each member is serving in a unique position, all cohort members will participate in VISTA specific activities such as regular cohort meetings, collaborative projects, professional development opportunities, and trainings. Additionally, cohort members will jointly complete one community service project of their cooperative design.
