About Noah Jackson
Noah is the Director and Founder of Forest Voices and a Community Forest and Sustainable Agriculture Researcher and Storyteller. Noah will partner with a group of cocoa farmers in Ghana to develop a course for U.S. undergraduates that involves documenting ecological knowledge of Ghana farmers, participating in the local cocoa harvests, and storytelling. This course is unique because it uses the power of storytelling to help students effectively communicate about farming and this global commodity. Noah is collaborating with Dr. Mary Bricker, Forest Voices; Dr. Bill Borrie, University of Montana, College of Forestry and Conservation; John Asante, Lead Farmer, Asuntua, Bia-Juabeso, Western Ghana; David McNally, TREES Project Manager, Rainforest Alliance, Accra Ghana.
