Patagonia’s contribution to Grow Ahead helped fund the national "Campesina a Campesina” exchange, "Planting Hope". This exchange brought together rural and indigenous women graduates of the National School of Agroecology in a dialogue to strengthen capacity to support agroecology and food sovereignty from a gender and feminist perspective in Chile and Latin America. This exchange built off years of training that the National Association of Rural and Indigenous Women (ANAMURI) has done in Chile, to train rural and indigenous farmers in agroecological techniques.

Cafe Campesino

Cafe Campesino’s contribution to Grow Ahead supported the partnership with Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Pangoa (CAC Pangoa) reforest coffee lands. In supporting this women-led reforestation project, Cafe Campesino supported CAC Pangoa, a cooperative of 691 farmers and families based in the foothills of the Peruivan Amazon, confront climate change in their communities.


LUSH’s contribution to Grow Ahead supported a successful farmer-to-farmer training for over 30 coffee farmers and trainers from across Latin America, to learn and share knowledge about the multiple benefits of agroforestry in coffee systems. The training launched a network of farmer practitioners to advance landscape regeneration strategies that support food security and climate change adaptation in their respective communities.

Organic India

Organic India’s contribution supported a scholarship for women farmers to attend Amrita Bhoomi’s agroecology school for native seed conservation, and support the launch of Amrita Bhoomi's seed distribution program which consists of a network of both men and women farmers who will save seeds and then collectively distribute them among farmers in India.

Divine Chocolate

As part of a larger initiative to plant 90,000 trees in Ghana, Divine Chocolate contributed to Grow Ahead by matching up donations to plant 10,000 trees with Kuapa Kokoo, the world’s largest Fairtrade cocoa cooperative and co-owners of Divine. The project's aim was to reforest cocoa farms and farm lands to create microclimates, reducing the impact of climate change on cocoa farmers.
