The Trading Partner Resource Network (TPRN) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that serves as a conduit between fair-trade consumers and small scale coffee farmer communities. Founder and President Tripp Pomeroy is the CEO and a co-owner of Café Campesino & Sweetwater Organic Coffee and is passionate about and deeply committed to fair trade and supporting small-scale coffee farmer cooperatives.

As a project that was born out of Cafe Campesino, naturally Lowthian Design Works was happy to set up and train Tripp how to keep the site up to date.

Koinonia Farm was our first client. When it was time to upgrade their online shopping site we recommended Bigcommerce. After migrating the data from their existing 3dCart platform, we customized the site to match their unique community. The new site offers some great features they couldn’t offer before. We will be working in the coming months to assist with Google Adwords, and to integrate their WordPress site with the new Bigcommerce WordPress plugin.

Big thanks go to Katie Litzell for her great work on the images and copy for the site.

Koinonia Farm was founded in 1942 as a “demonstration plot for the kingdom of God.” This meant a community of believers sharing their lives and resources, following the example of the first Christian communities as described in the Acts of the Apostles. Residents, interns and visitors on the farm are invited “to serve a period of apprenticeship in developing community life on the teachings and principles of Jesus.”

Koinonia Farm was the first website designed by Lowthian Design Works. It has gone through 4 major revisions to it’s current WordPress site. We have also helped Koinonia with training and e-newsletter support as well as on-site tech support. We helped them obtain free website hosting for being non-profit.

Lowthian Design Works did not do any of the original design work, however we migrated a Ruby on Rails website to a Responsive WordPress site. The original site, though well designed, was difficult to update, always having to go through the designer. Now on WordPress, anyone in the organization can log on and make edits to the site. We also moved hosting so they could get free non-profit hosting.
