My name is Myra McKenney and I will be moving to the Ithaca, NY area in September. Currently, I am an AmeriCorps*VISTA in Manchester, NH with Operation Frontline, a nutrition/cooking education program, created by Share Our Strength. I am gaining so much experience with non-profit work, organizing volunteers, and program coordinating.
I graduated from Cornell University last May, with a focus on Sustainable Agriculture, and I would like to re-connect with the community food security movement in Ithaca. I grew up on a small dairy farm in Chenango County, NY, and throughout college, I worked on organic vegetable farms and permaculture-centered communities.
If there are any positions available this fall relating to community food security, community gardening, farming, working with non-profits, nutrition, education, etc., please let me know.
Thank you so much for your help!
Myra McKenney :)
