Partners.

A Growing Culture is proud to partner with the following organizations:

In 2013, 15 lead farmer-innovators were nominated by the Kenyan Government to take part in a country-wide innovation fair. After the fair, these farmers jointly recognized the need for a farmer-led innovator’s association and Farmer-led Innovators Association of Kenya (FLIA-K) was born. Now, the group works to create a “pool of innovations” that will be easy for all farmers to tap into.

They amplify collective intelligence and build consensus to support locally-led change.
