We team up with small-scale farmer organizations around the world to support projects that improve the environment and community livelihoods. 

Where We Work

Our campaigns raise money for projects that are completely designed, implemented, and managed by community cooperatives. This is a radical shift in community development, placing trust in local knowledge and expertise. As a result, communities have more sovereignty over their food and resources to spread knowledge on sustaining their communities and their lands.
