June, 2022 — The 300 Committee Land Trust of Falmouth has been awarded a $5,000 grant from Martha’s Vineyard Bank Charitable Foundation to support its partnership with TerraCorps for the August 2022 through July 2023 AmeriCorps Service Year.

TerraCorps is an AmeriCorps-affiliated environmental nonprofit whose mission is “to prepare and mobilize emerging leaders and to help communities gain access to and conserve land for people and nature.” Working at the intersection of the land conservation and urban agriculture movements, TerraCorps’ vision is to create a future where land is the foundation of health and well-being for all people in every community.

This is Year 3 of the T3C-TerraCorps partnership. This year’s focus is on engaging volunteers in the stewardship of Falmouth’s conservation lands. “Our work through the TerraCorps program over the last two years has been valuable in helping us broaden our land management and stewardship capacity,” said Executive Director Jessica Whritenour. “We are grateful to the Martha’s Vineyard Bank Charitable Foundation for its important support for next year’s TerraCorps placement as we continue to build on the success of the last two years while also working with us to grow our community engagement.”
