Amir is a nonprofit organization that harnesses the power of gardening to inspire and motivate communities to serve others. We recruit and train young adults to build “social action” community gardens at summer camps. Last summer we partnered with five camps, and we are excited to announce that we are expanding to ten camps for Summer 2012! We are looking for passionate, energetic leaders to run our project.
As an Amir Lead Farmer, you will spend the summer at a sleep away camp building gardens and teaching campers about issues of social justice, such as poverty, hunger, and our moral obligations to others. Your journey will begin at Amir’s Training Seminar, June 4th-8th, where you will meet other Lead Farmers, learn the “nuts and bolts” of building a community garden, and learn to run educational programming utilizing these gardens. Using the Amir sourcebook, you will spend the summer serving as an educator and mentor. We are excited to hear from you!
