"Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture (MESA) connects sustainable farming leaders around the world for participatory training and cross-cultural exchange to strengthen local, resilient food systems worldwide. Since 1997, MESA has connected over 1300 farmers, activists and advocates and helped start nearly 150 small- scale farms and food justice projects worldwide. A non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, MESA enables cross-cultural exchange around global practices of sustainable agriculture. Training programs focus on ecological production practices, processing, direct marketing, community organizing and education, and organic crop research and breeding. MESA proudly offers the only J-1 Training and Cultural Exchange Program--as designated by the U.S. Department of State--to solely facilitate a "share and learn" experience on behalf of sustainable agriculture for small-scale farmers and grassroots activists. For over 10 years, MESA has funded dozens of small-scale SPRIGs abroad designed by enterprising Steward alumni in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Mexico.Thailand, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Lithuania, Armenia, Georgian Republic, Kenya and Ghana."
