Job Description

NCBA CLUSA is currently seeking (1- remote US volunteer or 1 in-person US volunteer) qualified Farmer-to-Farmer volunteer candidates for the position of Organic Fertilizer Expert to support Cooperativa Cafetalera San Miguelito, Limitada (COCASMIL) based in San Miguelito, Honduras.

The Cooperativa Cafetalera San Miguelito, Limitada (COCASMIL) was established in 1999. It began with farmer Don Benjamin and 12 other farmers looking for a way to sell their coffee at better prices and improve the livelihoods of the families that grow coffee.

COCASMIL provides the following services to their members : selling fertilizers to maintain the coffee farms (which the members can pay for with coffee, usually 80% coffee and 20% money), commercialization of coffee, cupping, drying (until 12% of humidity) and technical assistance in the field.

COCASMIL has been working towards becoming more environmentally conscious, which is why some of the members are moving towards producing organic.

This is one of the reasons why COCASMIL would like to learn 1. how to make their own organic fertilizers for coffee (soil and foliar) and compost, 2 : Learn different fertilizer formulas that the organization can make with locally sourced and available materials.

All the above needs to be aligned with the certification requirements and take advantage of local resources by using them efficiently.

Duration : 2 weeks, August December 2022
