Devin Thorpe of Forbes, also speaker and author of Your Mark On The World, interviews Kate Seely and Katherine Lorenz of Puente a la Salud, a nonprofit organization helping the people of Oaxaca, Mexico to grow a mystery grain called "amaranth".
Thorpe chats with the founders on a Social Entrepreneur show on Forbes where they tell about this great grain, a 16-hour grain crop available to farmers. Seely and Lorenz informs that amaranth grains can be especially beneficial for malnourished children and low-income families since Oaxaca remains one of the poorest state in Mexico despite its agriculture-based economy.
Cornwall, England has been christened as the first-ever rural social enterprise zone.Â Minister for Civil Society Nick Hurd remarked thatÂ what was happening in Cornwall was an example to the rest of the United Kingdom.
