The International Workshop on Agroecology and Sustainable Agriculture (IWASA) focuses on the application of agroecological principles for sustaining subtropical agriculture. Workshop participants will explore the integration of tropical and subtropical fruits and edible plants into farming which supports local food systems, as well as how to promote domestic and international trade. In partnership with local agricultural research stations, botanical gardens, farmers and local breweries, the International Workshop on Agroecology and Sustainable Agriculture will engage participants in hands-on training, focus groups, farm tours, wine tasting and cookouts. Daily activities will take place at FIU facilities and around various farm locations that host an extensive collection (more than 300 species) of tropical fruit species and cultivars.
