Volunteer Writing Opportunity (SARE)


The Illinois Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program at the University of Illinois is seeking a committed writing volunteer to tell a compelling story about a collaboration going on at Fowler Farm.  SARE, the Champaign-Urbana Schools foundation, teachers at the local public schools, and Hendrick House are working together to help local students learn about sustainable agriculture, genetics, water conservation, landscape architecture, and so much more. We’re looking for a storyteller who can convey the scope of this grant-funded project, from its humble origins to its grand plans. This story will be widely shared by all of the parties involved.  It will be distributed locally and on a state and national level to teachers, funders and those interested in agriculture education and local foods.

You can read more about this project here, and you can read more about SARE and Ann Swanson, Head of Hendrick House Farming Operations, halfway down this page.

If you are interested, please send a resume and a statement of interest to Mary Hosier, Project Manager at SARE (mhosier@illinois.edu) by 10/6/2018.
