The Small Farmers Project
This description of Gerrit Hendriks's work was prepared when Gerrit Hendriks was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2002.
Through a certified organic farmers' cooperative, Gerrit Hendriks gives small farmers a competitive niche in organic produce and the capacity to market and sell their products directly, thus keeping commercial farms from pushing them out of the market.
