At Food Well Alliance, we believe food builds community, and at the heart of a healthy food system is healthy soil.
We support efforts in Metro Atlanta to divert food waste from our city’s landfills into healthy soil for our farms and gardens, including one of our most recent initiatives, the Compost Design Table.
The Compost Design Table works as a process accelerator that focuses on designing viable solutions, then testing them through innovative pilot projects to increase community-based composting in Metro Atlanta.
We are looking for three impact-driven leaders to serve as Compost Design Table Fellows during the paid fellowship.
Over the course of up to 10 months, these innovators will work collaboratively with their process-driven peers to create and test a scaleable, viable solution to increase community-based composting.
To learn more about the Compost Design Table and application process, we will be holding an in-person information session on Tuesday, May 23, 2017. Register to attend the info session.
Among the criteria needed to be a fellow includes having a willingness to leverage their organization assets and intellectual capital; an ability to validate the problem and needs of key stakeholders with supportive evidence, research, and data; and an ability to evaluate and effectively present results of the pilot project.
You are eligible to be a Compost Design Table Fellow if you are the following:
Organizations with 501(c)3 status, a registered LLC, registered business in the state of Georgia, or public institutions are eligible to apply
If the organization has a board of directors, the board of directors must provide a letter of support, and the organization’s mission should align with the Design Table’s goal
Candidates must justify how the Design Table will advance the organization’s work
Design Table Fellows commit to work for up to 10 months in a paid fellowship to tackle tough local food system challenges
