In this participatory video project a team of coffee farmers identifies and documents sustainable land management practices through video, which could then be used to share knowledge locally, and potentially further afield. Participants were selected by the organisers from two neighbouring coffee co-operatives. InsightShare facilitators helped the group to identify the main threats to farmers, and look at changes in the local environment and weather. They produced a video, which was subsequently made into 3 short videos: ‘Climate Change’, ‘Land Management’ and ‘Land Subdivision’. The videos include many tips and techniques for agricultural practice, shown by collecting together the experiences and voices of numerous farmers in the two communities.
