This Rainforest Alliance Certified™ flower farm makes a point of hiring local women and helping to provide decent, sustainable livelihoods, and social benefits.
Rainforest Alliance president Nigel Sizer recently visited the largest Rainforest Alliance Certified™ coffee estate in Costa Rica and learned from a master of sustainable farming, 76-year-old Don Alfonso Robelo. Sizer’s 9-year-old son Jasper, pictured here with Don Alfonso, learned quite a bit, too!
A professor at North Carolina State University decided to get creative in her efforts to help students learn about sustainable agriculture in the tropics. Banana ice cream, anyone?
Does certification make real, on-the-ground strides in conserving biodiversity, safeguarding natural resources, increasing farm productivity and profitability and improving the lives of farmers, workers, and their families?
