Young Tree Community:

Claire Thomas, Gray Reilly, Andrew Harris and I started Young Tree Community to better serve the community development aspects of the Los Frios. Projects that I started during Peace Corps and new projects are outlined on the blog.


Since 2003 I have worked closely with Sur Futuro. They provided me with amazing support as a Peace Corps Volunteer and continue to support my efforts in Los Frios with agronomy advice. Sur Futuro and a wonderful agronomist named Franklin Morel have encouraged a coffee co-op called El Nuclio de Cafecultures de Monte Bonito. Young Tree Coffee has done some micro financing with the co-op. Cash for quality coffee is typically how I try and support them.
