Review for Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture (MESA), Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

Over the past five years I've hosted four MESA stewards on my small farm for varying amounts of time. These bright, young people are excited to learn about sustainable agriculture and apply new knowledge when they return to their home countries. Besides the exchange of farming knowledge, the cultural experience of hosting each of these stewards is powerful!
After having several experiences as a farm host, I was happy to accept a position on the MESA board. Knowledge is power and MESA does incredible work, promoting and enabling sustainable farmers on several continents. It is amazing that MESA impacts so many lives with an absolute minimum of paid staff!
Later today I will meet yet another MESA steward who will be spending several months on my farm. I'm looking forward to yet another rewarding experience as a host farmer.

Review for Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture (MESA), Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Three MESA stewards have been on my farm in the past three years. They have been some of the most cooperative people I've ever met. They all have had a very serious interest in sustainable food production and in learning more by practical application (WORK!). They have been a benefit to my farm and I believe we all learned valuable lessons together.
They also spent a lot of time with our extended family and will be considered friends for life.
