2019 Seeds Fund Recipient
During a Counter Culture Coffee Climate Change Adaptation Workshop, Nuevo Amanecer identified a need for a nursery for coffee trees and shade/reforestation trees. In addition to propagating and growing plants, the nursery also produces biofertilizers, aids in training members in good agricultural practices, and teaches the physical and sensory analysis of coffee.
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.
