Photos from the Field

Partners Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) volunteers have been out working all over Latin America and the Caribbean, helping to improve agricultural production, processing, marketing, and environmental management. Below are some recent photos from the field... 

In Nicaragua, F2F volunteer Janet Hernandez holds organizational development workshops with smallholder farmers and UNAG members in Nueva Guinea. 

Dr. Myriam Kaplan-Pasternak spent several weeks working with farmers to help improve goat and rabbit management in Haiti. 

F2F volunteer Ariga Grigoryan conducts a training on the importance of problem solving, working together, and general organizational development to greenhouse producers. Greenhouse producers who are members of the Jarabacoa Greenhouse Cluster generally tend to work individually rather than resolve problems collectively. The Cluster reached out to Farmer-to-Farmer for assistance in helping individuals learn how to work more efficiently and effectively together, thus leading to improved capacity to jointly resolve their problems as well as jointly improve productivity and resilience to climate change.
