Project Details

What We Need
  • A high-resolution digital version of an illustration that can be used across multiple channels (web, print, and/or merchandising)
Additional Details

We are looking to make an illustration to visualize what agroforestry is and why its important. This will be made into a small pamphlet for our business partners to offer to customers and be displayed on our website.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have all the information needed to be included in the illustratio, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have examples to show, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,212 , allowing us to continue to support small scale farmers as they combat climate change!

This is really important to us because we are working with concepts that sometimes can be hard to grasp for folks who aren't familiar with this type of work so having illustrations that can translate those meanings is essential!

About The Org

Our Mission

We connect individuals and organizations directly to small-scale family farmer organizations in the global south through crowdfunding in order to support small-scale farmers address the challenge of climate change in their communities.

What We Do

We team up with local partners, primarily fair trade and organic farmer cooperatives and NGOs, who lead the development and implementation of climate resiliency projects. We intend to bridge the resource and funding gap and will work in four key areas:

1) Facilitating a revolving loan program for farmer-developed resiliency projects, such as soil conservation and yield-boosting compost operations.

2) Raising funds for annual regional Farmer-to-Farmer exchanges. These exchanges will facilitate farm leaders' ability to share successes and resources. They will also produce written and multimedia resources, encapsulating farmer experiences and "takeaways" to share with other farmers.

3) Providing funds and resources for farm leader "multiplier" agroecology scholarships. Grow Ahead raises funds earmarked specifically to provide scholarships for women farm leaders and trainers to attend farmer-centric agroecology schools.

4) Raising funds for agroforestry systems.
