West African farmer to speak April 21 in Lewiston (04/16/2006)
A West African farmer will provide a global perspective on the impacts of American agricultural policy Friday, April 21, beginning at noon, at the Land Stewardship Project office, 180 E. Main Street, in Lewiston. There will be soup and bread provided during this event, which is free and open to the public. Bring a salad or dessert to share. RSVP by calling 507-523-3366.

Seydou Ouerdraogo raises cotton and is a community leader in Burkina Faso. He will speak about beginning farmer issues and the challenges of farming in his country, including accessing and transferring land, generating and retaining wealth in rural communities, and the impact of U.S. farm policy on West African farmers.

Ouedraogo's visit is being sponsored by the Land Stewardship Project and Oxfam America, which are working to create farm policies that benefit family farmers here and abroad.

An affiliate of Oxfam International, the Boston-based Oxfam America is dedicated to finding long-term solutions to poverty, hunger and social injustice around the world.

Founded in 1982, the Land Stewardship Project is a membership organization dedicated to getting more farmers on the land successfully raising crops and livestock. It has offices in the Minnesota communities of Lewiston and Montevideo, as well as the Twin Cities.
