Sustainable Harvest, in collaboration with Let's Talk Coffee roasters and retailers, has established a non profit disaster relief program called the Roya Recovery Project.

In March 2013 we sent out a film crew and team of coffee agronomists to document the crisis in Central America from Coffee Leaf Rust (Roya). The result of this video will be an e-learning training program for growers on steps they can take to mitigate the impact of Roya. It will focus on all aspects of the problem, with special attention on what organic farmers can do to combat the fungus.
