Elderberry Wisdom Farm is Recruiting Native American Interns! Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) Workforce Training Opportunity. Paid Internship through Chemeketa Community College. Deadline: September 1, 2021 - Internship starts October 5, 2021. This fall, a cohort of eight (8) Native Americans from Oregon’s tribal communities, plus urban Indians, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander students will learn to integrate traditional ecological knowledge perspectives into agricultural and horticultural career plans. Native American educators at Elderberry Wisdom Farm will combine TEK with traditional Western views to develop horticultural practices so students can learn to cultivate and grow native plant species, especially threatened and/or endangered traditional First Foods species. Experiential activities will be completed in our outdoor classroom which includes the greenhouse, elderberry patch and pollinator beds in a Native American environment at Elderberry Wisdom Farm. You will become equipped with knowledge and experience needed to meaningfully and successfully enter Oregon’s agricultural and horticultural workforce.

Interns will receive stipends and tuition waivers to complete this culturally-tailored workforce training plus HOR 111 which introduces you to a broad view of horticultural science.  Trainings will continue to be offered to cohorts of Native students plus students of color, including Latino, African American, etc. for a total of five (5) years in partnership with Chemeketa Community College with funding from USDA.
