Ecuador Spring Break 2022 Immersion

The Center for Food Innovation and Entrepreneurship took 10 students on an 11-day immersion trip in Ecuador over spring break. The trip was designed to increase students' understanding of the role of food in the world's populations and to explore the role of business in alleviating poverty through economic development and the pursuit of social justice. Working with Regeneration Field Institute (RFI) in Bahía de Caráquez, Ricaurte, and Quito, students learned about regenerative agriculture, interacted with local farmers, assisted RFI with current projects such as a planting vetiver and implementing a biocorridor on the farm, and explored the local areas. Watch for details on our planned 2023 Spring Break Immersion to Nepal!
