Review for Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture (MESA), Berkeley, CA, USA
I have had the opportunity to consult as an advisor for the Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture since its founding in 1992. A true grassroots organization founded to spread the growth of ecologically responsible farming by bringing small farms from different parts of the world together, MESA has been on the cutting edge of local, sustainable agriculture since before these terms have become bywords among non-profits and consumers throughout the U.S. Through the years, I have seen this program change lives, turn farmers into eco activists and entrepreneurs and bring diverse corners of the world together. This tiny organization has always been about local communities on a world-wide scale. I will continue to support it.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give MESA access to the funds the organization needs to support core programs, provide scholarships to stewards and develop its collaborative online education initiative.
