Eco3.23 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 working alongside the 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 at the Fond du Lac Reservation’s Gitigaaning (gardens and farm) and Na'enimonigamig (kitchen/cannery) and will work with all Agricultural division staff throughout their term. 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.
