While capturing stories from stakeholders in the Nicaraguan Dairy Industry, Cheryl noticed a unique storytelling structure typical in Nicaragua and she coined the "Robleto narrative structure," based on the story of how Dr. Robert Robleto was a farmer who became a doctor. The structure is described on the University of Wisconsin website and is now used at a teaching tool. View the video linked on this blog, and find out more here!

"I've had a wonderful time connecting with these memories while planting my first garden. Please know that my work in Guyana with the Farmer-to-Farmer program continues to strengthen my foundation and shape who I am." Thank you, Cheryl, for sharing your story with us!
We would love to hear from other volunteers about the ways that you've brought information and practices back home after your trips. Please share your stories with us as comments or via email!
