2018 Seeds Fund Recipient
During a Climate Change Workshop we hosted with ASPROCAES in 2018, Urcunina identified some of their biggest challenges as deforestation, pests and diseases, and low production of food crops. To address these challenges, they applied for a Seeds grant to create a nursery. The nursery also serves as a hub for training and fostering young people's interest in coffee production.
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.
