    ALL ARE WELCOME

    In honor of Women's History month, please join us in welcoming Florence Reed. In 1997, Reed founded Sustainable Harvest International (SHI), a nonprofit organization dedicated to working with rural Central American communities to implement sustainable land-use practices. As President of the organization, Reed divides her time between helping shape the future of programs in Central America and gathering resources in the United States, bringing together farmers, donors, volunteers, researchers and others to create a better future.  

    This presentation begins with a look at the global and local impacts of unsustainable farming practices in the tropics. It then focuses on Sustainable Harvest International’s unique and successful model for reversing this harmful trend.  The talk goes on to show how this simple approach helps to alleviate poverty, improve health, reverse deforestation, mitigate global climate change, reduce pollution, and much more.
