Friday, May 13th, 2011 Zumba is coming to Walpole, NH! Part salsa, part maranga, and a little bit rock and roll - get in on the fun and support the Cocoa Farming Future Initiative all at the same time!  The party starts at 7pm in the Walpole Town Hall in downtown Walpole with dance instructor Ajlan LaRock.

Money raised will go to promote sustainable agriculture, economic development, and the conservation of biological diversity on the Island Nation of Grenada.

The Cocoa Farming Future Initiative (CFFI) is a non profit working to raise awareness and money for cocoa farmers of Grenada and surrounding island nations. CFFI works closely with the Grenada Cocoa Association (GCA), a cooperative of 5,000 farmers which has been in operation since 1946. CFFI and GCA are working to grow, ferment, market and sell high quality sustainable crops, educating through their five nurseries on the island and promoting the current best practices in cocoa farming with good shade canopy management techniques.
