Demonstration Shadehouse Constructed in Guyana

The Farmer to Farmer Program in Guyana has teamed up with the local Shadehouse project to construct a demonstration shadehouse on Saint Stanislas College Farm, where the F2F-Guyana office is located. The shadehouse will serve as a training site, an experimental station to test new production practices, and an example of structure design well-suited for weather conditions in Guyana. Planning is also underway for a second demonstration shadehouse in partnership with the Guyana School of Agriculture.

Partners of the Americas thanks all of the Farmer to Farmer volunteers who have contributed their time and expertise into the design and function of these shadehouses! Below are some pictures of construction on a rainy day.
