Nicaragua, a small country in the Central American isthmus, has achieved 90% food self-sufficiency through supporting small farmers using agroecological methods. Join us to learn how this has taken place via an agrarian reform in the 1980s and today’s public policies under the Sandinista government that support the popular economy, plus, popular organizations like the ATC that promote training programs for youth and the formation of unions and cooperatives. These efforts have also been important to resist the effect of US sanctions against Nicaragua.

Coffee will be available from Las Diosas women’s Cooperative of Esteli, Nicaragua (roasted by Thread Coffee Roasters) and ATC will also share their experience of developing Café Revolución, produced by the May First Cooperative of Jinotega, Nicaragua.
