My name is Jallah Rouse, I am a Biology major at Johnson C. Smith University, and I recently had the extreme pleasure of attending a SEEDS field trip to the Mexican state of Chiapas.
Sustainabilityï¿½ sometimes it sounds like an ideal. However, on our SEEDS field trip to Chiapas, Mexico, students from the United States, Puerto Rico and Mexico were able to witness small cooperatives of indigenous agricultural workers working together with scientists to make sustainability a reality.
Long flights, rain and cold weather could not stop the energy and excitement of the SEEDS fellows arriving here in San Jose, CA. Old fellows are excited to be here again with friends and new fellows are excited to meet new friends.
