Building Healthy Communities with ASAP sponsored by the Dogwood Health Trust Foundation

Four Selected Fellows will work with the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project (ASAP), a nonprofit based out of Asheville and serving the 23 counties of Western North Carolina along with the Qualla Boundary. ASAP’s mission is to help local farms thrive, link farmers to markets and supporters, and build healthy communities through connections to local food.  Through the internship, Fellows will learn about ASAP’s Local Food campaign, the ASAP Growing Minds Farm to School program, and the Local Food Research Center in order to create a product centered around culture and various food commodities in their community.  Indigenous and Latinx educators are encouraged to apply.
