"Catching Up with our SEEDS Program" by @Counter_Culture

"Catching Up with our SEEDS Program" by @Counter_Culture

is an acronym that stands for Sustaining Environmental and Educational Development at Source, and our SEEDS program was created to structure and define Counter Culture's monetary contributions to projects that are not coffee-quality-specific but still benefit our coffee-producing partners and their communities. We allocated our first funds in January of 2011 and have made approximately one contribution per quarter since then. We decided to earmark a penny per pound of coffee we purchase to SEEDS, and, since its inception, we have directed money to agricultural training programs, research projects, and a food security initiative, among other projects. To date, we have contributed a total of $24,963 to projects in 6 countries.
