As agriculture interns for Samaritan’s Purse, Jessica and Meagan are incredibly excited to be living and working in Indonesia. Placed with an amazing Indonesian partner organization, the girls are supporting their local collaborators in creating a training centre for farmers on sustainable agricultural tecniques. For now, that means assisting with experiments in aquaponics, drip irrigation, bio-char, vermicomposting, and the use of moringa and chaya plants.
This program is sponsored in part by the (former) Canadian International Development Agency, as part of both their youth employment strategy, and their desire to promote sustainable development throughout the world.
