"Our community has the solution."

-Francisco Matom Marcos, Roya Recovery Project Promoter

Farmer-to-Farmer development relies on farmers to share agricultural practices and experiences with each other. Farmers learn effective practices from other farmers and create new methods through their own ingenuity. The experience of learning from equals is empowering, promoting an "if she can do it, so can I" perspective. With the Farmer-to-Farmer approach, the impact expands well beyond the project area as farmers keep sharing information without boundaries.
