2019 Seeds Fund Recipient

2019 Seeds Fund Recipient

This Seeds grant provided the Muungano Cooperative with funding to produce and distribute 50,000 coffee plants and 10,000 erosion-controlling trees to over 500 of its members. In South Kivu, many coffee farmers tend trees that are more than 60 years old, which are less productive and less profitable than younger trees. The project supports both the economic and environmental sustainability of producers in a region historically lacking in development funding.

  • Seeds Program

    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.
