Farmer-to-Farmer volunteers have been busy this year in Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Haiti! Check out what they've been doing lately to improve agricultural practices and strengthen youth networks in F2F host countries.

In Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, a recent rise in non-typical climatic events has made it difficult for farmers to predict when and how long their trees will bloom. In February, F2F volunteer Gavin Vanderpool toured 34 orchards before making recommendations on combating the damaging effects of frost and shifting temperatures.
In May, F2F Volunteer Dustin Homan took his passion for 4-H to Nicaragua to work with youth at Fabretto Foundation on their community goals. One of the biggest challenges? Explaining in Spanish that your two favorite "football" teams play different sports!
Howard Fenton is currently serving as a F2F volunteer in Haiti with Makouti Agro Enterprise to help coffee producers, cooperatives, and networks with their record keeping strategies. This will assist them in building capacity to analyze data to make better business decisions!
