The Powerful Vision of a Small Farmer Cooperative
Small-scale coffee farming can be back-breaking work for small rewards. Building a democratic cooperative is not easy. And surviving in a competitive market while at the mercy of climate extremes is brutal. So how has Café Organico Marcala, S.A. (COMSA) in Honduras managed to survive and grow?
In this live webinar, you will learn from a direct source of their success. Miriam Zelaya is a 3rd generation coffee farmer who has been a teacher, agricultural engineer, and Fair Trade leader. She and her colleagues have demonstrated an unparalleled vision in breaking new ground to enable coop members to survive in the market—and strengthen family relationships in their community. At this live Zoom event, you will learn how their multi-faceted approach to integrated organic farming has built farmer skills and confidence, enabled the coop to grow and gained widespread industry recognition for their innovations.
