Leaders: Marlin Hershey and Marion Good
Meet small holder farmers in Crimea and Zaporozhye who through MEDA's assistance and training are now realizing increased productivity and higher profit margins and more accessible markets.
See firsthand the sustainable system of linkages between supply growers and buyers in the value chain.
Visit farmers who traveled in 2011 from Ukraine to Ontario to visit greenhouse growers.
The trip also includes two days of visiting Russian Mennonite Historic sites.
Finish the week by spending a day at the beautiful historic city of Yalta on the Black Sea.
