COMMUNITY AGROECOLOGY NETWORK
April 20, 2012

The Community Agroecology Network is an amazing nonprofit organization that actively engages sustainable coffee producing communities, students, and coffee consumers all over the world in a direct trade relationship that eliminates middle men in the commodity chain and helps producers receive more returns for their product. Their International Field Study program was the most impacting experience of my life as I was able to spend 10 weeks in a rural coffee producing community in Mexico participating in an intercultual exchange of ideas and experiences. Their Santa Cruz student-based group, Friends of CAN (FoCAN), works tirelessly to connect students in the Santa Cruz community with farming communities in Mesoameria. They also discuss and do hands on activities related to topics such as sustainability, community building, and interculturality- all key aspects of creating a more socially and environmentally just global food system. Hooray CAN & FoCAN!
