This Week in the Field

This week, 9 specialists are volunteering their time through Partners' Farmer to Farmer Program in Nicaragua, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic! They are working on assignments ranging from "Tropical Cattle Forage and Grazing Management" to "Green Building and LEED Standards,"  "Honey Network Evaluation," and more.

Additionally, four more will travel this weekend to Honduras, Guyana, and the DR. Below are a few photos from the field which give a snapshot of recent activities.

Dave and Flo Wagner are traveling throughout Haiti, meeting with stakeholders in the honey value chain. They will analyze the strength of the network and help build a strategic plan for the national industry.
