Wisdom of the Elderberry Farm is seeking a volunteer with a little video production experience to help us establish our Native American cultural preservation plans.
Our Native American nonprofit plans to record a few Native elders, cultural leaders and indigenous scientists so we can produce video clips for prospective Native Americans who are learning more about environmental conservation, habitat restoration and other agricultural and horticultural service learning.
We plan to launch an exciting video recording project on Thursday, October 1 and will wrap up our project on Thursday, December 31, 2020. We plan to record from 1 to 4 gifted Native Americans who are willing to share their wisdom and knowledge about Traditional Ecological Knowledge, organic farming, preservation of threatened and endangered Native plant species, and other cultural topics relevant in today's changing landscape.
We are seeking someone with experience using video camera and editing equipment and software. If you have served as a producer at Capital Community Media, you would have access to their equipment and also can help us to put our recordings up on their community website for distribution to the local community.
