Description

Volunteer programs that help people residing in low-income communities get involved with the rehabilitation of their neighborhoods can be a valuable tool in facilitating social change. The Mission of Mary Farms co-op demonstrates how social change can occur through community engagement and open discussion. Mission of Mary Farms provides experiential learning, fresh produce, and volunteering opportunities. This presentation will explore how communal involvement and conversations about the future can lead to the restoration of Dayton. I will examine how Mission of Mary navigates the line between rebuilding a community and gentrifying it. I will also investigate how this co-op has affected its community and if it can expand to reach more of the Dayton area.
