We work to continue, revive, and protect our native seeds, heritage crops, naturally-grown fruits, animals, wild plants, traditions, and knowledge of our Indigenous and land-based communities. We aim to maintain our culture and resist the global, industrialized food system that corrupts our health and freedom through inappropriate food production and genetic engineering.

Volunteer and Internship Opportunities:
We gladly accept volunteers–we always need help. Our volunteers work in our gardens and our food production center, assist us with our technology questions, collaborate with us on our research, and even . We work very hard and have a very small staff: we can use all the help that we can get.
2012 summer AmeriCorps VISTAs spend time together in the WELRP intern house.
Through a WELRP internship, you can experience the culture and way of life at White Earth. If you’re outgoing, hardworking, open-minded, and have an interest in feeling the earth between your fingers, sharing your energy to assist with important Indigenous work or gaining research and technical writing experience, for an unpaid internship or volunteer opportunity. We provide housing.
The White Earth Land Recovery Project continues to develop long-lasting relationships with colleges and universities, such as the Minnesota State Community and Technical College, Fergus Falls and Colorado State University. In the past, we’ve collaborated with The University of St. Thomas, Hamline University, Antioch University, Macalester College, and Carleton College.
You can also volunteer or intern through a partnership with one of the following organizations:
The White Earth Land Recovery Project collects and maintains the following types of donor information when it is voluntarily provided to us: contact information–such as name, address, telephone number and email address–giving information, information on events attended, publications received and special requests for program information, and information provided by the donor in the form of comments and suggestions.
We keep this confidential information on file for IRS purposes. We also use it to analyze overall giving patterns in order to make more accurate budget projections as well as to understand donors’ interest in our mission and to update them on the organization’s plans and activities. This information is shared with staff, board members, volunteers, and consultants only on a confidential and need-to-know basis.
The White Earth Land Recovery Project does not sell, rent, trade, or share its donor list with any other organization. The White Earth Land Recovery Project never sends out mailings on behalf of other organizations.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Whenever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the webpage.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Discontinuing Contact upon Request:
It is the policy of the White Earth Land Recovery Project to communicate with donors according to their expressed preferences whenever possible. We will discontinue or change the method used to contact any person upon that person’s oral or written request directed to the organization, its professional fundraiser, or other agent.
The White Earth Land Recovery Project shall maintain a record of all requests by persons who indicate to the organization, its professional fundraiser, or other agents, that they do not wish to be contacted by or on behalf of the White Earth Land Recovery Project. This policy does not prohibit contact by an individual or group voluntarily soliciting on behalf of WELRP, even if the person being contacted has requested to be placed on the “do not contact list.”
Upon a person’s (or a person’s authorized representative’s) request that the White Earth Land Recovery Project discontinue future contacts, the person’s name and address will be promptly modified in WELRP’s donor database to ensure that no further contact is made with the person. The White Earth Land Recovery Project will also take steps to ensure that the person’s name is removed from any external databases or records under our control.
The White Earth Land Recovery Project will maintain an electronic record of all requests for discontinuance of contacts, effective with the adoption of this policy by the White Earth Land Recovery Project’s Board of Directors. Oral requests will be noted in writing by WELRP’s staff and then permanently recorded in the electronic donor database. The records of persons who have made such a request will be maintained by the White Earth Land Recovery Project to the extent necessary for legal or liability purposes.
