A week long summer opportunity in Montana for young adults who are looking to connect their faith and environmental stewardship.
Young adults from all denominations are encouraged to participate.
The Eco-Stewards Program is for young adults ages 20-30 who are interested in exploring the connections between our faith and environmental stewardship. The 2011 program will take place June 2-9 with the theme “Living with and from the Land on the Crow Reservation in Montana: Sustainability and Reconciliation through Agriculture, Health and Green Building.” The program will be held at Greenwood Farm, a 40-acre organic farm on the Crow Reservation, just outside of Hardin, Montana.
There are also limited paid summer internships available at Greenwood Farm in Montana, one of several churches, or one of several Presbyterian Church (USA) camps around the country.
The Eco-Stewards Program blog describes the 2011 program: “Through discussions with environmental experts, local farmers, doctors and tribal leaders, we will consider how communities can achieve sustainability and reconciliation through better agriculture, health care and green building practices. Our exploration of these issues will include lectures, community gatherings, field excursions, hands-on project work, creative worship, and sharing of personal passions and vocational discernment. While paddling the Bighorn and hiking in the Sand Rocks, participants will have time to absorb the region’s powerful landscape while reflecting on their own eco-life journeys.”
Apply by March 1. Email Rev. Rob Mark with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Eco-Stewards Program is a partnership between the Presbyterian Church Camp and Conference Association and Presbyterians for Earth Care.
