T'ikapapa Wins UN Seed Award

In this post, I first wrote about T'ikapapa and its nomination for a UN Seed Award.

Today, I decided to follow up on this story and am delighted to report that T'ikapapa DID receive the funding from the UN to start up its project.

From the UN's Seed Initiative website:

"In Peru, T’ikapapa links small-operation potato farmers in the Andes with high-value niche markets in urban centers. T’ikapapa promotes biodiversity conservation and environmentally friendly potato production techniques while giving farmers open access to technological assistance and innovation, encouraging local farmer’s associations and propagating the flow of market information."
