My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture (MESA), Berkeley, CA, USA
I'm a MESA alum from 2004. I had the opportunity to experience two completely different organic operations, one in California's prime production areas - Northern San Joaquin Valley - and the other in upstate NY state - on the rolling foothills of the Catskills. These experiences allowed me to better understand American agricultural production, not only the organic/natural production systems but also to observe the neighboring conventional farms, which enhanced my view of the impact that industrial scale farming has on a global scale.
Needless to say I nurtured from the cultural exchange and my English skills increased significantly.
Overall it was a fantastic experience and opportunity for anyone that is in the Ag field.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Encourage the program managers and directors to request the farm hosts to implement safety training programs on their operations.
