The Farmory Green Bay
 
 
 
The Farmory is an indoor, organic, urban farm that will bring together people, plants, and profits! It will provide opportunities for the development of job and entrepreneurial skills for people who are living in poverty and/or having difficulty maintaining sustainable income. The Farmory will also be an educational tool for the entire community, teaching people about sustainable gardening practices they can use at their homes to enhance their access to fresh, nutritious food. The two Summer VISTA members serving with The Farmory will have an impact on individuals and the community, while gaining excellent experience in the development of a project focused on community, environment, and food sustainability. They will be working with other community leaders who have wide and deep expertise within the various aspects of The Farmory development. Assignments will include: 1. Increase The Farmory’s community outreach by implementing educational programs at The Farmory and at community events, e.g. farmers’ markets. 2. In collaboration with other team members, create onsite educational opportunities that help our neighbors develop the skills they need to become more self-sufficient by raising more of their own food. This will include recruiting and managing volunteers to implement educational programs that further this goal. 3. In collaboration with other team members, recruit, train and coordinate volunteers for our aquaponics grow systesm and our newly launched fish hatchery. The ideal Summer Farmory VISTA members should be able to work both independently and in groups, be comfortable engaging people from diverse backgrounds, think and act strategically, and respond appropriately to feedback from teammates and collaborating organizations. They should be able to act independently when they are able, but seek guidance when it’s needed. The ideal candidate will have sound computer skills, focusing on Microsoft products.
