Fifth round of Trellis Fund projects
In 2016, the Horticulture Innovation Lab announced nine new Trellis Fund projects awarded to organizations in Africa and Asia. See the 2016-2017 Trellis Fund projects factsheet (PDF) for a full list of projects.
After the projects were selected, students were recruited and matched to the projects, announced here: "Students selected for projects in Ghana, Uganda, Kenya, Nepal, Cambodia" and projects took place during the 2017 calendar year. The experiences of three students were detailed on the Horticulture Innovation Lab blog, including two videos:
