I got to join in on a bit of an adventure with my office as they hosted some guests from another country to learn more about our organization and to see first hand some farms in Northern Moldova. Even with the quick notice I was grateful for the opportunity to go and learn a bit of what ProCoRe does and who they work with.
After some time to connect with the guests and a tour of the University in Bălți, we made our way north just outside Drochia to visit a vegetable and fruit farm.
There was some hands-on learning as we went out to the greenhouses to see everything up-close. The tomatoes were huge and there were lots of them – all grown naturally.
Next stop we made our way to a dairy and cattle farm not far from Bălți to visit the farmers and see their production at their facility.
It was a great day and I learned a lot from everyone. I’m enjoying working with the organization that I have been partnered with through the Peace Corps and am looking forward to what the next ~23 months will hold as we work together.
As we made our way back to Bălți from the farm visits and said our goodbyes to the guests, we enjoyed the sunset marking the end of the day.
