The 2011 Eco-Stewards Program has just been announced with the theme “Living with and from the Land on the Crow Reservation in Montana: Sustainability and Reconciliation through Agriculture, Health and Green Building.” This program, for young adults ages 20-30 will take place June 2-9 at Greenwood Farm, a 40-acre organic farm on the Crow Reservation, just outside of Hardin, MT.
If you are a young adult interested in exploring the connections between faith and environmental stewardship, I recommend looking into the Eco-Stewards Program. There are also limited paid summer internships available at Greenwood Farm in Montana; one of several Presbyterian churches in West Virginia; 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.”

The Eco-Stewards Program is a partnership between the Presbyterian Church Camp and Conference Association and Presbyterians for Earth Care.
