Agraria Center Education Summer Associate
Agraria seeks to expand its partnerships in the region to educate people about the importance of soil health to a healthy food system and increase access to fresh, healthy foods. By engaging farmers, community residents and other stakeholders we will work to build and strengthen the farm-to-table network by increasing access points for fresh local foods; facilitating linkages between producers and consumers; providing for a broader range of local foods that reflect cultural and community needs; and expanding local, food-related educational, entrepreneurial and employment opportunities. Agraria is dedicated to investing in beginning and underserved farmers who are Black, Indigenous and People of Color in supporting and sustaining a robust regional food system, and providing education to farmers around regenerative agriculture practices, food production, food security, and food system economics.

Member Duties : The Summer Associate will assist with summer camps at Agraria and at Melrose Acres, a Center for Urban Agriculture in South Springfield.
