Training in the Republic of Georgia

    I have been traveling throughout the Republic of Georgia the last two weeks and have one more to go.  This project is training Georgians in Extension Methods.  About a year ago they started a national extension program and we are here helping them to better understand how to do extension.  Our main emphasis is how they can reach farmers with the intention of strengthening agriculture.  Over 50% of the population is on the farm and most farms are less than 2 hectares.  
    It has been a great trip and I have enjoyed conducting the training.  It will be interesting to come back in a year or two and see how things have developed.
