COW goes to Nicaragua!


For the next year, Oregon State student Austin Fricker will be living in the country of Nicaragua volunteering with local citizens to help develop sustainable farming and living practices.

Having been to Nicaragua three times, and majoring in Crop and Soil Sciences, Austin is more than prepared for the difficulties and challenges he is about to face. Through processes of crop rotation, natural fertilizers, and the introduction of new farming techniques, Austin hopes to help develop local farms into not only sustainable, but profitable ones as well.

Austin will be blogging along the way as well as uploading pictures and stories so keep checking back to hear about his progress! To see his blog or make a donation, please check out "Project Nicaragua" in the COW Projects section.
