Description

Sanctuary Farm seeks systemic change by helping to improve the overall health of the community, recognizing that healthcare must address the body, mind, and spirit and that an individual’s health is intimately connected with the health of one’s nutrition, community and all of creation. They convert abandoned lots into gardens that grow produce which is then distributed free to the community through a twice-weekly produce stand and in conjunction with educational opportunities with partnering organizations. They offer on-site programs such as therapeutic gardening and a local summer camp for children. A volunteer is needed to serve as a community program manager, overseeing the development and implementation of all programs, including working with volunteers, planning new programs, and recruiting community members.
