2021 Seeds Fund Recipient
Building on the success of a 2019 Seeds project, Cueva de los Llanos used a 2021 Seeds grant to finance 24 more apiaries. The added apiaries benefit 64 additional cooperative members and more than 400 households who have crops in the area.
Besides the environmental benefits, the members will commercialize honey and contribute a percentage of sales to their savings group, strengthening their economic status as a community.
Counter Culture Coffee collects $0.01 from every pound of coffee sold to fund our Seeds program. Annually, $1 per pound of our winter coffee blend, Iridescent, goes to further increase our contribution. Seeds offers financial grants to producers and producer organizations we work with to implement sustainability projects they identify as beneficial. To date, we’ve allocated over $280,000 to Seeds projects.
