Clarks goal is to help set up an organic farming program with the local village. The plan is something you can start in your own neighborhood here at home where a co-op of villagers will donate a portion of their property to the community to be used as a vegetable or fruit garden. A team of volunteers from the village will prepare, plant, maintain, and harvest the crops giving a share to the landowner as payment for donating part of their yard. If the land owner wishes to volunteer their own time to the co-op the share of fruits and vegetables they receive increases. As more people become involved in the community garden the more is produced. This also saves the community from having to set aside a large plot of land for a traditional community garden. The program isn't intended to feed the village but rather supplement the diet and help bring modern western organic farming theory to a part of the world where 2/3 of the population is involved in agriculture.
Jordan will be focusing primarily on cultural relations with the village and Panigram. He will be involved in setting up a standard operating procedure for the hotel and making sure both parties jive with the proposed plans. Having aspirations of a job involving diplomacy on both the grassroots and international scale this experience will teach him invaluable lessons in communicating to a culture about as different from his own as you can get. Having assisted Clark with many biological research endeavors he will also be invaluable in providing assistance in setting up the organic farming co-op.
