“Renewed Vision for the Future”
With the mission to build prosperous and sustainable farming communities in rural Vietnam and around the world, Fargreen., JSC
is a social enterprise from Vietnam working with rural farmers to produce and sell organic mushrooms grown on rice straws, honey and vegetables to businesses like hotels and restaurants.
“I expected the program to be the place of mere exchange of technical know-hows, but I was pleasantly surprised to have gained much more. This program gave me better clarity on how to run an organization and vision for the future,” commented the founder and CEO of Fargreen, Ms. Trang Tran.
As the deliverable, Fargreen created detailed handbooks on production of three types of organic mushrooms, and with the partnership of the local government, organized a workshop to share them to nearly 70 farmers. In addition, inspired by the synergy created during this project of bringing different partners together, Fargreen also hosted a luncheon in collaboration with the chef of a prestigious hotel in Hanoi, where farmers had the chance to dine dishes prepared using the vegetables they grew and feel firsthand the value of their products.
