Blog Carnival: Why the farmer to farmer approach works.
By Anonymous


As we approach World Food Day this year, we are focusing on the role that family farmers play in feeding us and caring for the earth.  So this Blog Carnival by Agrilinks on the John Ogonowski and Doug Bereuter Farmer-to-Farmer Program (F2F) is especially relevant and highlights American family farmers working in hand in hand with family farmers around the world.

F2F provides technical assistance from American volunteers to farmers, farm groups, agribusinesses, service providers and other agriculture sector institutions in developing and transitional countries.  From July 14 to July 18, this Blog Carnival will communicate stories to the world from volunteers, partners, beneficiaries, and key participants as they describe their experiences with F2F.

Every story in the series is unique and filled with human touch: a rabbit changing the lives of a family of six, the deep bonds that can develop between a volunteer and beneficiary, women empowered to improve farming productivity in northern Ghana…and the list goes on. Check out the whole series here.
