Join the University of Vermont Educational and Cultural Tours and learn about fair trade, organic, and shade-grown coffee. Open to the public, this tour is for coffee enthusiasts, coffee professionals, students, environmentalists, and social justice advocates. Participants will gain hands-on experience and first-hand insight into the day-to-day reality of small coffee-producing families and their communities. Tour members will observe why coffee is related to some of the most urgent and critical issues of our times. Join us to see why seemingly unrelated subjects – from illegal immigration and illegal drugs, to the decline of migratory songbirds and the disintegration of farming communities in Latin America – all come together around coffee production and the cup of coffee we consumers choose to drink.
