Yesterday was long and grueling–but productive! After a four-hour heated coffee grower discussion, APOT made some important decisions about how to market their coffee. One thing is for certain, the market space for organic production is not shrinking–it’s growing–and, hopefully so will APOT’s business.

But, today, is a celebration! We’re going to celebrate all the great work that has been done here with each of the three product committees–banana, coffee, and Farmer’s Market–and all the administrative committee organizing that we’ve done to get ready for the next team of Extensionistas in May. After a meeting of the General Assembly and reports from each product committee, we’re going to have a barbeque–Costa-Rica-style!

Hasta pronto!
