After the harvest - Fair Trade coffee and challenges
Young Student Center - Madison St. Lounge (behind the Bean & Bagel)
Wednesday, April 17, 2013 · 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Fair Trade farmers receive a better price for their coffee, but even that is not enough. Coffee is a seasonal crop. The documentary, After the Harvest documents what happens when the season is over and farmers are unable to stretch earnings until the next harvest. Guatemalan Fair Trade coffee farmer, Miguel Mateo from the Manos Campesinos coffee cooperative, will visit KSC to talk about his coffee experience and answer questions about the movie.
Sponsored by Fair Trade USA and the Keene State College Fair Trade Club. Movie and talk will take place at 10am in the Madison St. Lounge. Mateo will also be at the Student Center at noon to meet students and answer questions.
