In this December edition of Elderberry Wisdom Farm’s newsletter, we are continuing to honor and acknowledge another gifted Habitat Restoration Intern who participated in this year’s experiential service learning training. The short film below, featuring Shannon Chinnock (Chickasaw, Cherokee, Blackfoot), was recorded at our recent celebration at Chemeketa Community College where five interns were acknowledged for completing their Fall Habitat Restoration Internship.
We are sharing this series of short films so our community can understand the importance of funding our Habitat Restoration and Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) Internships. We are appealing to our followers to become a Founding Donor of Elderberry Wisdom Farm. Your support will help these and future individuals as they pursue their environmental conservation career pathways.
By becoming a Founding Donor, you are also strengthening the sustainability of our Native American organization. We have been almost exclusively dependent upon grants since forming in 2019, and are now diversifying through community outreach, and asking you to help us continue to lift our Native American community out of poverty.
