CIEE Food & Agriculture Unit

The Fall 2009 CIEE student group recently spent time learning and exchanging with the AAN.  Students stayed with farmers from Kudchum district and helped them sell their organic produce and foods at our Green Market in Yasothon.  They also spent a morning with the farmers’ group in Ban Dong Dip, Roi Et province – where sugarcane and cassava are starting to be grown using organic techniques.  We’ll be posting more detailed writing and profiles from the students in the coming days.  For now, here are some beautiful photographs from Ana Kostioukova:
