“HARVEST, ABUNDANCE AND GRATITUDE
Late this summer, I was invited to go berry picking at a local berry farm. Turning the corner I held my breath seeing millions of blueberries hanging on rows and rows of bushes.

The co-op got its start with a $20,000 micro-loan from Frontera de Cristo, the Presbyterian border ministry. It was decided that the cooperative must be Fair Trade Plus. What does that mean? It means:
