The Agribusiness seminar is organized by Peace Corps Volunteers. The funding comes from a Peace Corps Partnership Grant and is used to pay for the transportation, food, and supplies for the seminars. The initiative focuses on helping the farmers in our communities better organize, communicate, and market their products. While these people have an extremely in-depth knowledge of their crops they often lack the business savvy to profit from them.
