Martha Caswell, ALC Research and Outreach Coordinator, recently traveled to Montpellier, France for the kickoff meeting for the latest round of the Thought for Food Initiative.
The ALC is excited to announce that we have recently been awarded a highly competitive grant to undertake a project to “Assess Diversification Strategies in Smallholder Coffee Systems” through the Thought for Food Initiative–funded by Fondation Daniel Et Nina Carasso, Fondazione Cariplo, and the Agropolis International Foundation.
Our partners for this project are from the Santa Clara University, Community and Agroecology Network and longtime cooperative, farmer and regional university partners in Nicaragua and Southern Mexico. We will be working with this core team, and also plan to integrate students and industry partners over the term of the project (2017-2020).
Stay tuned to hear more details as the project unfolds.
