Event description

Description

Monday, October 1, Prospective Fellow Day, 1-4 PM

Tour the farm, meet the phase I Fellows and learn more about AMI's Farm and Food Education Fellowship.

Please contact Jessa Fowler at 540-468-2300 or jessa@alleghenymountainschool.org to arrange for an alternative visit date.

AMI's flagship program is an 18-month Fellowship that prepares individuals to become teachers and ambassadors for a more vibrant and accessible local food system.

Selected Fellows are fully funded to spend six months in immersive training on AMI’s Mountain Farm campus (Phase I) and one year in service work with AMI’s partner organizations (Phase II).

AMI Fellows gain a deeper understanding of the relationships between food production, natural systems, diet, and optimal human health and participate in a hands-on educational program in sustainable agriculture. AMI's Fellowship Program creates strong leaders who successfully work to build more cohesive community food systems. They go on to work as local food coordinators, farmers, school garden facilitators, market farm managers, food systems educators, and advocates for sustainable food systems.
