    RICHMOND — Several Vermont farmers are planning to travel to El Salvador in the coming months to share their knowledge with farmers in that Central American country.

    A partnership between the Northeast Organic Farming Association and Winrock International is hosting the trips. Their purpose is to help Salvadoran farmers learn about organic farming and marketing and improved agricultural practices.

    The first three volunteers —Charles Mitchell, Tom Honigford, and Patrick Sullivan— will arrive in San Salvador in mid-January. The Vermonters say they hope to both teach and learn during their trip.

    Funding for the program comes from the United States Agency for International Development through the Food for Peace program under the U.S. Farm Bill.
