Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture (MESA)

MESA works with farmers from around the world to share their culture and sustainable farming practices here in the US. They have grants and programs to help small/beginning farmers on their path toward the sustainable agriculture journey. They also have agroecology classes online which is the program I worked on. During my time at MESA, I spent most of my time reviewing the agroecology flower petals and student presentations recorded from their previous years to create content for the social media campaign to promote the Training on Applied Agroecology Program. Working with MESA gave me the opportunity to explore non-profits within the food systems; their structure and their challenges. This experience shaped my decision on my next steps and path after graduation.
