Experience has shown that farmers around the world learn best from their peers.
Emerging from Central America in the 1970s, the “Farmer-to-Farmer” movement has fueled the training of thousands of peasant farmers by facilitating the exchange of practical experiences and best practices. This movement is based upon community empowerment, traditional knowledge, and local innovation and cooperation. Farmer to Farmer trainings are the most effective method to “scale out” agroecology.
Featured Training: Cooperative Coffees
Grow Ahead has partnered with Cooperative Coffees to sponsor the first Farmer to Farmer training of our program. Grow Ahead's goal is to fully fund a Farmer to Farmer training for 30 farmers for Fall 2017.
Cooperative Coffees is a green coffee importing cooperative committed to supporting and partnering with small-scale coffee farmers and their exporting cooperatives.
