Today's episode is really special for two reasons. First, it has the potential to be very impactful on the FFA. Second, 80% of the world's hungry people are farmers. But, unlike U.S. farmers, they are subsistence-based and less sophisticated. But programs like Growing Hope Globally are taking farming expertise and productivity from the U.S. and exporting it to these struggling farmers.
On today's episode, Alex Morse will join us to explain what Growing Hope Globally's mission is. He will talk about helping farmers in many poor countries throughout the world and how you can get involved. He will also discuss how his organization developed a curriculum for FFA students to help them contribute to worldwide agriculture through their supervised agricultural experiences.
Alex specializes in helping farmers in Central America, and he has traveled to small holder's farms all throughout that region. He has even taken FFA students with him to see who they were impacting with their efforts. He has some amazing stories to share, and he describes people trying to farm in conditions that no American farmer would ever consider.
