Building Wealth and Prosperity in Mountain View VISTA

 About the Project

The Anchorage Community Land Trust is a community development nonprofit organization that has been working in the Anchorage, Alaska, Mountain View neighborhood for a decade. The ACLT redevelops blighted properties, operates community gardens, and works with residents to build a more prosperous community. 

In the summer of 2018, the Anchorage Community Land Trust partnered with the Catholic Social Services RAISE program to construct a 28,000 square foot urban farm. The farm is intended to be a urban agriculture space and incubator, allowing low-income community members to grow produce and sell it on site.

Your Role

During the year of service, the VISTA member will

  • Work with the community and Catholic Social Services to identify users of the space

  • Create a management structure for the farm that allows for long-term sustainability

  • Build a pipeline connecting farmers to the Anchorage Community Land Trusts programs for low-income business owners.

The Community of Anchorage

In one word, life in Anchorage is exciting. There are always adventures to be had wherever you go. Alaska is home to some of the best hiking, skiing, canoeing, fishing and biking in America. At the same time, Anchorage also has a thriving restaurant scene and all the amenities you would typically find in a big city. You will rarely ever be bored during your stay in Anchorage.
