      Fair Trade Rice Farmer Speaking Tour Schedule

      **check www.engage-humanity.org for updates**



      Come learn from three Thai rice farmers about the struggle to sustain
      small-scale agricultural livelihoods, the injustices found within the
      international rice trade, and the need to support emerging solutions such as
      sustainable development and fair trade. While rice farmers essentially feed
      the world's population, depressed world prices coupled with increasing
      agricultural costs have left many landless, in debt, and unable to provide
      for their own families. Phakphum, Arat, and Kanyah are involved in the
      worldwide movement promoting sustainable agriculture and fighting against
      genetically modified organisms, unfair trade regulations, and free trade
      agreements. The events will include a rice tasting, a discussion with the
      farmers, and a traditional string tying ceremony done when friends part
      ways. Join us to explore why rice is life for much of the world's
      population and how we can respect small-scale farmers grain by grain.
