Round 1 (2011)

First round of Trellis Fund projects 

Find out more about the Horticulture Innovation Lab's first Trellis Fund projects, each of which is described in the 2011-2012 Trellis projects fact sheet (PDF). Student participants from the first round of projects also shared their experiences in a promotional video. In 2015, one of the first students to travel reflected on how his experience influenced his career as a farm advisor and extension specialist in a first-person blog post for Feed the Future. Find this blog post and more background about his trip here: ‘Local’ inspiration from half a world away.

Trellis Fund projects in Round 1 took place between June 1, 2011 and Aug. 1, 2012.
