Lightning talk: Trellis Fund, supporting local organizations, engaging graduate students


The Trellis Fund was created to support small, local organizations with grant opportunities. In this five-minute lightning talk, Elyssa Lewis of the Horticulture Innovation Lab explains that the fund offers small grants to local organizations and pairs them with U.S.-based graduate students to partner on short-term projects. Lewis goes on to discuss success stories from recent Trellis Fund project, future changes and opportunities.

This presentation was given at the 2016 Horticulture Innovation Lab annual meeting in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
