This is Ahmorn on her organic rice farm. I was involved with the Nova Scotia Environment & Development Coalition, which had a solidarity project with environment and community groups in Thailand. We were able to send several farmers to visit successful organic farms in other parts of Asia, and brought a few farmers to Nova Scotia as well.
Thailand was my second volunteer stint abroad, but a shorter posting. I was there supporting the Nova Scotia-Thailand solidarity project, as well as write articles for a Canadian audience on topics including sustainable development, community-based tourism, farming and fair trade.
