The rapid economic and population expansion of Cambodian and Vietnam within the greater SE Asian region presents opportunities for impacting the livelihood of many people where horticulture remains an important undeveloped business sector supported by small farmers. Our goal is to empower small farmers (59% of whom are women) with integrated experiential education and training for sustainable vegetable production that limits postharvest losses, increases food safety, increases market access and, importantly, increases income. We have designed an innovative participatory approach to meet these goals by networking experts in horticulture production through marketing.
