Thank you to those that supported the successful fundraising effort on Petridish. Brett is in the field leading this season’s effort in Honduras.
What if we could produce coffee in a carbon neutral way while providing more income for local farmers and a high quality habitat for birds and other wildlife?
“Through my research and a partnership with the Mesoamerican Development Institute (MDI) this vision can become reality. Fair trade, organic, and sustainably grown coffees are beginning to claim a larger share of the coffee market. What these certifications mean for local farmers and wildlife can be difficult to determine. The results from this ongoing study will provide a scientific basis for growing coffee that benefits wildlife while enabling farmers to increase yields and the overall value of the coffee they produce.
