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

Rating: 5 stars  

I first met MESA through Full Circle Fund, an engaged philanthropy organization in the SF Bay Area. MESA was one of our grantees in 2012 and I assisted with a project that helped them track and report on their impact as well as explore new funding models such as crowdsourcing and corporate partnership. I so enjoyed working with Leah and Lauren that I jumped at the opportunity to join their board in 2013. MESA does amazing agriculture and sustainability work with incredible global reach - and all with a very small team. I was impressed with their quality of programming, which provides hands-on learning and knowledge exchange for visiting stewards and hosting farmers. And I was further impressed with the reach of their network. I look forward to helping MESA refine their formal curriculum as the organization continues to grow both here in the states and abroad.
