This presentation, presented by Elyssa Lewis of the Horticulture Innovation Lab, discusses five ways that the Trellis Fund program generates impact. The Trellis Fund is a grantmaking and capacity building program that connects organizations in developing countries with U.S. graduate students who have agricultural expertise.
#1: Builds local organizations’ capacity to grow and improve their programs
#2: Improves local organizations’ technical knowledge and practices
#3: Engages U.S. graduate students in international agriculture
#4: Creates partnerships between developing country organizations and U.S. universities
#5: Enables the extension of cutting edge horticultural knowledge to smallholder farmers and value chain stakeholders
