Photo of the Week: Reliable Farming in Mexico

By Inter-American Foundation on Comment

Mexican IAF grantee partner Centro Campesino para el Desarrollo Sustentable A.C. (CAMPESINO) supports economic development in the state of Tlaxcala to ensure a more reliable food supply by providing approximately 80 farmers access to working capital, loans and training in conservation practices, management and agro-ecological techniques.

Don Ricardo Palafox, of CAMPESINO’s leadership, works in La Colmena Campesina, a community-based cooperative, to train farmers in techniques to increase production of their vegetable gardens and fruit trees, and provide a continuous supply of high quality seeds. CAMPESINO also trains farmers in organic agriculture practices, how to raise free-range poultry and offers opportunities to participate in exchanges.
