Event:

Faces of Fair Trade Farmer Visit
Banana farmers from Ecuador and Costa Rica, a pecan farmer from Georgia, and a local fruit and vegetable farmer may seem worlds apart, but they are all part of the same movement to build a fair and sustainable food system. Three New England-based organizations that dedicate themselves to finding markets for small farmers are sponsors of the farmers’ story tour: Oké USA, Red Tomato and Equal Exchange. Local groups in each city are also sponsoring the tour. Join us for a rare opportunity to hear these farmers from different regions of the globe talk about the challenges they face, their experiences in the market, and the impact of consumer support for fair trade and family farms.
